Brock Wilson raised under the gun to 20,000, Mike McDonald moved all in from the small blind for about 210,000, and Kirk Steele tanked for a while int eh big blind before he called.

Wilson folded, and McDonald showed AdJc. Steele turned over KhQh, and McDonald needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Js9d5c2d10d — McDonald paired his jack on the flop, but Steele rivered a king-high straight to win the pot and eliminate McDonald in 11th place.
