Event 12: Marc MacDonnell – 8th Place ($3,870)

$1,650 Purple Chip Bounty No Limit Hold’em (Single Re-Entry)
Level 19: 2,500/5,000/500 Ante

It seemed like an innocent hand for the most part, right up until the river. It was heads up between Marc MacDonnell and Ryan Van Sanford and nothing big happened as the board ran out AcTs5s3sJc.

Van Sanford took that moment to say all-in, which was actually putting MacDonnell all-in. He counted his chips, looked at the board, looked at Van Sanford, tried to get him to talk, and eventually tossed in calling chips.

MacDonnell’s 3rd pair KdTd call was no good when Van Sanford tabled the flush 9s4s to send him out in 8th place. It was another big hand for Van Sanford who moved up to 630,000.
