Immediately, McKenna announced he was all in and pushed forward his 1,489,000 which was more then pot. Deeb thought for about 30 seconds and then said all-in, and McKenna nodded in accordance to signify he called.

Deeb stood pat, and McKenna drew one. Deeb stood pat a final time, and McKenna threw in the {10-} and drew one.

Deeb: {8-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-}
McKenna: {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-}

Deeb held a number eight, and McKenna was drawing to a wheel and needed a five or six to stay alive.

McKenna revealed his {q-}, and was eliminated in fifth-place for a $72,653 payday.
