Action folded around to the player on the button who raised the action to 650. Mike "Timex" McDonald was in the small blind and he cut out a three-bet to 2,800. It was then on Philipp Gruissem in the big blind and he announced a four-bet to what looked to be 5,500. The original raiser and McDonald came back over the top with a five-bet ship.
Gruissem quickly ditched his cards and McDonald was awarded the pot before the flop. With this victory, McDonald's stack has increased to about 42,000.
