Mac Twists The Knife
Mackey had been the short stack, but got his double-up pushing with T♣ 8♦ against Matt Glantz's A♥ 6♦ catching two pair. This then left Glantz langusing in third, and he ended up all-in on a 7♣ 6♦ 3♣ board with 6♣ 5♠ against Mackey's J♠ 7♠ and couldn't complete the outdraw.
One Hand Turnover
This left Mackey heads-up with Anthony Rivera, the latter still retaining the chip lead. On the first hand, Mackey raised to 87k and Rivera made to 287k and Mackey moved all-in. Rivera did a double take and said, "What? You're all in? I call."
