Dominik Panka raised to 500,000 from the button and Mike "Timex" McDonald three-bet all in over the top for 5.39 million. Panka asked for a count. A moment after being given the count Panka announced a call.
The tension mounted in the tournament area as Panka was five cards away from becoming the first Polish European Poker Tour champion. The flop came and Panka paired his deuce. McDonald jumped into the lead, however, when the rolled off on the turn. McDonald was suddenly looking to dodge an ace or a deuce on the river to stay alive and fight on in this heads up match. The dealer rapped the table and burned a card. He produced the river card.
McDonald was eliminated in second place and is forced to settle for a $1,064,865 payday. Panka was pushed the final pot and is the newest PCA Main Event champion!
