McDonald Calls Time on Moorman

Chris Moorman has been eliminated

Mike "Timex" McDonald has just ended the tournament hopes of Chris Moorman just shy of the money.

The action folded around to McDonald who completed from the small blind. Moorman was seated in the big and he made a standard raise which McDonald called. The dealer handed the pair the {10-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} flop and a fight ensued. McDonald checked, Moorman bet 16,000, McDonald raised 'pot', Moorman moved all-in and McDonald called. When the hands were turned face up it was Moorman looking happier.

Moorman{10-Diamonds} {3-Spades}

So McDonald needed a six, seven or running clubs. The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and by this time Moorman was a 89.64% favourite to win the hand. The dealer peeled over the final card and it was the {7-Spades}.

A deflated Moorman picked himself up and took the lonely walk out of the Rio and McDonald now has 490,000.
