Good Timex for a Call

Michael McDonald has won a nice pot in a three-way battle with Chong Wing Cheong and one other player. Cheong fired first on the {6-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} flop, making it 900 to go. McDonald called from the button and the third player check-called from the big blind.

When Cheong checked the {3-Clubs} turn to McDonald after the big blind also checked, McDonald seized the initiative and bet 2,500. Only the big blind called. The river was the {K-Hearts} and against McDonald bet when checked to, this time for 5,500. The big blind made the call and found that he had McDonald outkicked by one pip, {A-Spades} {10-Hearts} for the big blind against McDonald's {A-Hearts} {9-Clubs}.

That pot lowered McDonald's stack to 26,200.
