Championship Day 3: McKoy Wins Showdown Without Showdown

$3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship
Level 23: 10,000/20,000/3,000 Ante

We got to the table with a flop of Qc6s2s and Steven McKoy facing a bet of 65,000 from Muhamad Abdel-Rahim. McKoy made the call and the dealer put out the Kd on the turn. This time Abdel-Rahim led out for 80,000 and McKoy made the call.

The river was the 3d and Abdel-Rahim fired a third bullet, this time for 150,000. McKoy took some time, then carefully counted out the chips to make the call, and then moved them forward.

“Nice call,” said Abdel-Rahim.

Neither player wanted to show their hand and McKoy waited and then said “muck it so I don’t have to show.” Abdel-Rahim did, and McKoy followed suit, winning the nice pot without having to show his hand.
