Donald Jackson

There was 1.5 million in the pot, and the flop read 8d7s5c when Donald Jackson got all in for 1 million more from the big blind. Cody Brinn tanked for a bit before folding under the gun. Kevin MacDonald had Jackson easily covered on the hijack, so the two remaining players flipped over their cards.

MacDonald: 8s8c
Jackson: 6h5s

Turn and River: 4h8h

Jackson was eliminated on the hand in 13th place for $13,245 despite making the straight when he ran into the quad eights held by MacDonald. After collecting the pot MacDonald was up to 9.5 million.

Kevin MacDonald – 9,500,000 (76 bb)
Donald Jackson – Eliminated in 13th Place ($13,425)
