McCormack Above a Million; Fitzgerald on the Rail

Elias Vaaraniemi raised to 23,000 from early position and picked up two callers in Mick McCloskey in the hijack and Thomas Fitzgerald in the cutoff. Robbie McCormack three-bet to 125,000 on the button and Vaaraniemi quickly folded, while McCloskey needed more time to come to the same conclusion.

Fitzgerald then shoved for around 300,000 and McCormack called.

Thomas Fitzgerald: :::9h:::9d
Robbie McCormack: :::Ad:::Kh

The board came :::Qs:::3c:::2c:::Ac:::Ah and Fitzgerald was left empty-handed, while McCormack became the first player above a million in chips.
