Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

McDonald Goes For Broke

We didn't see the action until all the chips got in, but we found a three-way pot on a {3-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Hearts} flop. When we walked up, Mike McDonald had 6,300 chips out in front of him and so did his neighbor. Jason Senti had raised a mess of orange and yellow chips, and the resulting action saw all three players get it all in.

Senti: {5-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds}
Opponent: {5-Clubs} {6-Clubs}
McDonald: {A-Clubs} {10-Clubs}

Senti and Mr. Opponent had the same hand, but the opponent had a straight flush draw, one out to the clean win. McDonald had high hopes too, and his club draw gave him a shot at dragging the biggest pot of the day.

The turn was the blank {Q-Spades}, though, and the river blanked off with the {7-Hearts} as well. Senti and Mr. Opponent chop it up, and the resulting loss takes McDonald all the way down to about 27,000.

Jason Senti us 85,000 12,000
Mike McDonald ca 27,000 -31,000
