  • Mike McDonald Signed as Full Tilt Poker Red Pro

Mike “timex” McDonald is a young poker player from Canada who has had a successful poker tournament career. Now McDonald can add a new accomplishment to his successful career. McDonald was recently signed to FullTiltPoker.net as the newest Red Pro.
McDonald is not yet twenty one but he has already accomplished so much in the poker industry. McDonald most recently placed fifth in the €5,000 buy-in European Poker Tour (EPT) Dortmund and earned almost $250,000 for his efforts. Though his tournament play is very good he has yet to be able to show his skills at the World Series of Poker. Players have to be at least twenty one years old to compete in the tournament series so he will have to wait just a little bit longer to compete.
McDonald commented that he was asked by CardRunners to become a member of Team CardRunners. He stated CardRunners wanted more team pros and they had seen his tournament videos were very popular on the website. CardRunners then sent McDonald’s bio to Full Tilt and they got back to McDonald saying they would like to add him.

Though he has not been added on the Card Runners page as of yet McDonald’s videos on the CardRunners site are extremely popular. The videos include play in the $109 Double Shootout at PokerStars and the $22 rebuy at Full Tilt Poker. McDonald has earned ratings on his videos of right above 7 to a little over 9.

McDonald will join fellow Team Card Runners members Isaac Baron, David Benefield, Taylor Caby, Ryan Daut, Brian Hastings, Eric Liu, Mike Schneider, Andrew Wiggins, Cole South and Brian Townsend. McDonald commented that he did not expect to join the team especially before his participation in the Dortmund event. After that tournament McDonald stated he thought it was a reasonable possibility one day.
