Tom McMahon, Big Stax 300 Day 2

It turns out that there are two players who have now made back to back Big Stax 300 Final Tables. McMahon finished 9th in the 300 that Joe Palma won at Big Stax XXI. They are here once again and this time McMahon could be going much deeper than his previous finish.

Action folded to McMahon in the small blind who decided to limp in with his ~20 big blind stack. Joe Palma then moved all-in covering McMahon and risking about 1/4th of his chips. McMahon made the call and would be at risk.

McMahon A♠10♠ vs Palma K♦Q♥ Pot: ~12.5M

Board: 8♠4♠3♣5♠10♥

Essentially no sweat for McMahon after turning the nuts. Palma takes a small hit to his progress but is still very healthy. Tyreem Williams and Frank Williams are now battling on the short stacks with everyone else over 40 big blinds.
