Allon Allison raised to 40,000 in the hijack seat, Mike McDonald called in the cutoff, and Jeremy Wray moved all in for 187,000 on the button. Both blinds released, as did Allison, and McDonald made the call.

McDonald: {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}
Wray: {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

It was an unorthodox flip, and the {k-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} changed very little. It was all over when the {4-Diamonds} turned, giving McDonald an unbeatable full house, and the {a-Diamonds} completed the board.

Wray is off to collect $60,700 in prize money, while McDonald is up to 3.9 million chips.

Anton Iaroslavskii Eliminated in 24th Place ($50,900)

Mike McDonald opened by raising to 40,000 from under the gun plus one. It folded around to Anton Iaroslavskii on the button and he announced an all in bet of 327,000. The blinds folded and McDonald quickly called.

Iaroslavskii showed {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and was racing with McDonald's {A-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. The dealer rapped the table and produced the {3-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop, pairing McDonald's king and thrusting him into the lead.

Iaroslavskii failed to improve on the turn ({2-Hearts}) or the river ({10-Hearts}) and was eliminated in 24th place. McDonald continued his domination and now sits on 3.6 million in chips.

McDonald Keeps Climbing

• Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Mike McDonald cut out an early position raise and found calls from Anton Iaroslavskii in the small blind and Max Silver in the big.

The trio of players saw a flop of {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and there were two checks back to McDonald. He continued out for 70,000 and Iaroslavskii quickly let go of his cards. Silver called to see fourth street which was the {6-Hearts}. He checked once more and McDonald continued his aggression by betting 200,000. Silver stayed the course.

The river brought the {4-Clubs} and Silver checked for a third time. McDonald moved forward 450,000 and Silver went into the tank. About a minute passed before he opted to let go of his cards. McDonald was pushed the pot and now has about 3.3 million in chips.
