50/50: McDermott Sent to the Rail in 4th ($4,480)

On a heads-up turn of [7sAh4hAc], Jim McDermott moved all in for around 400,000 and David Shaw went into the tank.

"Alright, here's a double-up," he sighed as he set out a stack of chips to call.

"Argh, you got me," McDermott admitted as he flipped over [8d5d] for just eight-high while Shaw tabled [5h5c] aces and fives.

McDermott could now only hit a six or a seven to stay alive but the river came the [10d] to secure Shaw's win and sent Jim to the rail in 4th place.
