Event 1: David MacDonald Takes the Chip Lead

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 27: 40,000/80,000/10,000 Ante

John Depersio opens the button to 160,000, and Bienvenido Santiago calls in the hijack. Albert Eframoff three-bets to 320,000 in the cutoff, and David MacDonald four-bets to 700,000 on the button. Depersio and Santiago fold. Eframoff calls, though, and it’s heads up to the flop.

It comes 9d7h2s, and Eframoff bets 1,100,000. MacDonald moves all in for 2,400,000 total, and Eframoff calls, having his opponent slightly covered.

Eframoff: 6d6h
MacDonald: QdQc

The turn 4h and river 3h complete the board, securing MacDonald’s double. He’s now the commanding chip leader, while Eframoff is left with less than two big blinds.

David MacDonald – 6,720,000 (84 bb)
Albert Eframoff – 145,000 (2 bb)
