Chris McNally, Day 2 Level 25

Chris McNally has been grinding the short-stack all day and finally found a great spot to get a double.

McNally opened the pot from under the gun and was called by Marv Siegel on his immediate left and the big blind defended as well.

Flop: 10♥9♥7♠

The big blind checked and McNally led into his two opponents. Siegel then moved all in for ~950k total which had McNally covered by just ~150k. The big blind folded and McNally made the call for ~800k total.

McNally 10♣10♠ vs Siegel J♥J♣

Turn: K♠

River: 5♣

McNally finds the perfect time to flop a set and fades the six outs from Siegel. Siegel is left crippled with ~5 big blinds after the hand and will be under immediate pressure. McNally has ~1.8M after the encounter.
