McDonald Calls Polk's Bluff

[user68268] • Nivo 13: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Mike McDonald opened to 90,000 on the button, and Doug Polk called from the big blind. Polk then checked in the dark before the dealer dealt the {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop. McDonald checked behind.

The turn was the {A-Spades} to pair the board, and Polk checked. McDonald checked again, and the {3-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Polk led for 135,000, and McDonald made the call.

Polk turned over the {8-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, and McDonald tabled the {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs} to win the pot.

Polk Gives It Up

[user153638] • Nivo 12: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

Doug Polk raised to 70,000 on the button and Phil Ivey defended from the big blind to see a flop of {q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{j-Hearts}, which they both checked. Action repeated itself on the {J-Spades} turn, and then Polk checked for a third time before Ivey bet 100,000. Polk gave it some thought but ultimately decided to release his hand.

A Couple for Timex

[user153638] • Nivo 12: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

Mike "Timex" McDonald raised to 75,000 from the button, Phil Ivey folded from the small blind, and Doug Polk raised to 221,000 from the big. McDonald responded by four-betting all in and Polk quickly folded.

Not long after, Polk limped from the small blind, McDonald checked his option from the big, and the two saw a flop of {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}, which they both checked. They did the same on the {K-Clubs} turn, and then Polk check-called a bet of 40,000 on the {5-Diamonds} river. McDonald showed the {j-Clubs}{5-Spades} for two pair, and it was good as Polk sent his cards to the muck.

Scott Seiver - 4th Place

After firing three bullets in this event, each worth AU$250,000, Scott Seiver has been eliminated in fourth place.

Mike McDonald raised on the button to 60,000, and Seiver called from the big blind before the dealer placed out the {A-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop. Seiver checked, and McDonald bet 50,000. Seiver check-raised all in for 206,000, and McDonald quickly called. McDonald had the {K-Spades}{8-Spades} for a flush draw, and Seiver had the {7-Hearts}{4-Spades} for middle pair.

The turn was the {5-Spades}, and that quickly put an end to things before the {3-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

With that, Seiver earned AU$750,000 for his fourth-place finish, losing just AU$15,000 on the event. McDonald moved up to about a million in chips.
