Mike McDonald burst onto the scene when he was just 18-years old, winning EPT Dortmund for $1.3 million. Flash forward nine years and McDonald's amassed more than 10 times that amount in live tournaments alone.  McDonald does not grind the circuit like he once did, as a startup business called Poker Shares takes up most of his time. 

McDonald dives deep into the inner workings of his business and also shares candid stories about the selling and buying of action he's partaking in over the years. The man is known as "Timex" elaborates on an especially startling story in which he cashed for nearly $2,000,000 only to profit a mere $12,000 on the entire event. 

Aside from all of that McDonald gives his thoughts on who's worth the most in the WSOP Main Event from the following six superstars: Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, Phil Hellmuth, Fedor Holz, Dan Colman and Dan Smith. Lastly, former Lamborghini owner also speaks some strong words about Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan, the defunct Epic Poker League, and Ultimate Bet.
