Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Trickett Smashes Timex


Jonathan Little opened for 2,000 from early position and received a call from Mike "Timex" McDonald in the small blind. Sam Trickett, who finished as runner-up in the $1 million Big One for One Drop this summer, then three-bet to 6,300 from the big blind, Little folded, and McDonald moved all in for 32,000. Trickett didn't seem excited but made the call nonetheless.

McDonald: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Trickett: {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}

McDonald got it in good, but the {7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop paired Trickett's ace and gave him a big lead. Neither the {10-Hearts} turn nor {Q-Hearts} provided McDonald with an eight, and he was eliminated from the tournament.

"Good luck in the €50,000 Majestic High Roller tomorrow," Justin Bonomo wished McDonald from across the table.
