McNally opened the pot from the hijack to 65k. Marv Siegal, in the cutoff, moved all-in for 240k. Action folded to Shaotong Chang in the big blind and she 4-bet all-in (~2.1M stack) putting McNally to the test for his recently acquired stack. McNally made the call for 1.685M total and one of the biggest pots of the tournament would be run-out just minutes away from the bags coming out.
