Mike McDonald got it all in from the big blind for 88,000 with Ah5h, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the Ad7s of Jonathan Jaffe in the small blind.

The board came 7c3h2d7h8h — Jaffe paired his seven on the flop and turned trips, but McDonald rivered a heart flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Mike McDonald  –  182,000  (30 bb)
Jonathan Jaffe  –  315,000  (53 bb)

With 17 players remaining from 39 entries, the average chip stack is about 287,000 (48 big blinds). The final six players will finish in the money, earning at least $113,490 each.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until there are nine players remaining for tomorrow’s final table.
