James Mackey Eliminated in 2nd Place

Hand #221: Gal Yifrach raised to 325,000 from the button, James Mackey three-bet to 1,125,000 from the big blind and Yifrach called.

The flop came down {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, Mackey continued for 1,000,000 and Yifrach called.

The turn was the {2-Spades}, Mackey shoved for 4,325,000 and Yifrach tanked for about three minutes before he called (covering Mackey by less than a big blind).

Mackey tabled {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for tens and deuces, leading Yifrach's {A-Spades}{8-Hearts} for eights and deuces. Yifrach trailed and had only five outs, but the {8-Clubs} river fell to give Yifrach eights full of deuces to eliminate Mackey in second place.
