Mike McDonald Busts to Vasili Firsau

zedmaster84 • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Mike McDonald

Among the former EPT champions still in contention was also Mike McDonald, but his challenge to become the second two-time winner has just come to an end.

Vasili Firsau raised to 10,000 from middle position and McDonald called in the big blind. On the {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop, McDonald checked and Firsau continued for 10,000. McDonald called and both checked the {5-Diamonds} turn. On the {3-Diamonds} river, McDonald checked again and Firsau pushed all in.

McDonald, who had 38,500 left, tanked for some time and eventually called it off with the {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Firsau held {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} and that was it for the former EPT Dortmund champion.
