Petrangelo Breaks Timex

Mike McDonald

A preflop raising war resulted in Mike "Timex" McDonald being all in from the button for around 60,000 with the {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. His opponent, Nicholas Petrangelo, was in the cutoff and held the better hand with the {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.

The {3-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Spades} flop was bad news for McDonald as it paired Petrangelo, although he did pick up a gut-shot straight draw. The {5-Spades} turn didn't complete it and neither did the {9-Spades} river. "Good game, guys," McDonald said before taking his leave. With that, Petrangelo is up to 255,000.
