Mike "Timex" McDonald has accumulated just under $7 million dollars in live tournament earnings, and has proven himself to be one of the top tournament players in the game. McDonald has also been hired to coach players at big final tables, selling his services to 2011 WSOP main event champion Piuz Heinz and 2012 third-place finisher Jacob Balsiger. Timex is known as a player with a great understanding of how one should adapt their play based on payout structures in tournaments, and he recently demonstrated his responsiveness to these conditions at the 2014 PCA $100,000 high roller, where he played a short stack in an interesting manner. Card Player TV caught up with him a few days after that event to learn more about the dynamics at that final table.
