Mike McDonald Passes Nemesis on Poker’s All-Time Money List

With his victory in the EPT 12 Malta – €25k High Roller event, Mike “Timex” McDonald moved up to 15th on the All-Time Money List as compiled by TheHendonMob.com.

The €498,575 first place prize brings McDonald’s total winnings to $12,478,018 and was enough to push Timex past long-time rival and 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Jamie Gold.

Gold notoriously commented “That’s what you get for calling with Jacks” after sucking out in a big pot at a featured table in the 2007 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event where his pocket Threes were dominated after the flop by McDonald’s pocket Jacks.

Timex clearly hasn’t forgotten the hand which took place on his 18th birthday.
