Following a flop of Td7hQd, Deonarine Itwaru checked from the big blind and John McDonald checked from early position. Joseph Jean bet 15,000 from the cutoff, Itwaru raised all in for 39,500 and    McDonald reraised all in for 126,000.

Jean tanked for a little while before he folded AcQc face up.

Itwaru sowed QsJs, but was drawing slim against the 7d7s of  McDonald.

The 3d turn and 8h river completed the board, safe for McDonald to score the elimination.

John McDonald  –  195,000  (98 bb)
