$100,000 Challenge

All In and a Call

• Nível 22: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Yevgeniy Timoshenko limped the button and Mike McDonald exercised his option with a raise to 275,000. Timoshenko sprung to life with a pot-sized check-raise, McDonald moved all in, and Timoshenko called.

McDonald: {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Timoshenko: {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}

Both players held an ace, but McDonald's kicker made him a big favorite. The {4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop was interesting as it put out a lot of chop outs, of which the {K-Clubs} turn was one of them. The river was the {7-Hearts} and the dup chopped the pot.
