Mike McDonald, former EPT Dortmund winner and PCA Main Event runner-up, is working on an amazing year already with three seven-figure scores. Some might even say the force is with him.
Just now, towards the end of the first level, we saw McDonald play a small but interesting pot.
McDonald raised from late position to 450 and was called by the player in the big blind. The flop brought out and both players checked.
On the turn the hit and McDonald's opponent bet 775. The Canadian pro made the call and on the river the popped up. This time McDonald faced a 1,175-chip bet and he called rather quickly.
The number three on the Canadian all-time money list was shown and that meant his were strong enough to take down the pot.
