The moment where play is approaching the money is possibly the perfect time to double back into serious contention in an EPT and Mike McDonald has done exactly that. He told us about the hand while watching the unfolding action in the next deal.
"I raised to 4500 from the hijack position, and the big blind re-raised to 17,000. I shipped for 41,000 with queens and he called with threes. Queens held."
A satisfied smile replaces the trademark icy stare for a fleeting moment before McDonald is back to watching the action around him like a hawk.
