Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Timely River for Timex

Shamus • Level 2: 75-150, 0 ante

Michael "Timex" McDonald opened with a standard raise from the button, then Jeff Hakim reraised to 1,900 from the small blind. It folded back to McDonald who made the call.

The flop came {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, and Hakim led with a bet of 2,200. McDonald reraised all in, and Hakim called with the 11,450 he had remaining. McDonald showed {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} for the overpair, but Hakim had a pair over that with {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

The turn brought the {2-Hearts} and Hakim's kings were still best. Then the {J-Clubs} fell on the river, giving McDonald a set and sending Hakim to the rail as we near the end of Level 2.
