David McConachie, Day 3 Level 25

McConachie started the action with an open to 100k on the button. Friman Villalona was in the small blind and 3-bet to 235k. Jason Paster was in the big blind and 4-bet all-in for ~1.55M  (covering both players). McConachie quickly called and Villalona now faced a tough decision. After a few moments, Villalona got out of the way (said he had QxQx) and McConachie would be at risk.

McConachie 10♠10♦ vs Paster A♣K♦ Pot: ~2.6M

Board: 9♠A♦6♠7♥2♣

Paster starts his day off by winning a flip and moving up to ~3.1M.

McConachie is eliminated in 36th place for $3,157.
