There were two all-in triangles in action on Mike McDonald's table, with the Canadian all in and ahead holding {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} against both Andrey Shatilov's {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} and Niklas Astedt's {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

"You're in pretty good shape," said McDonald to Astedt as the Swede saw his opponent's hands.

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{j-Clubs} and when the turn came the {9-Diamonds}, it was Mike McDonald's turn to say "Well now I'm in good shape!"

As if by magic, the river was the {10-Spades}, giving McDonald a Broadway straight and eliminating both of his opponents just before the dinner break.
