McFarland Goes "As Thin As It Gets"

On a board reading      an opponent check's to the in position Brad McFarland, who bets 31,000.

His opponent takes a few moments to think before calling to see the river. 

The   completes the board and he again checks. 

McFarland takes a minute to stare down his opponent, eventually announcing himself "all-in". He has his opposition covered and when the player across the table snap calls, McFarland quickly turns over    for top pair. 

His opponent tables    and once McFarland sees that, well, let's just say, he adds a little injury to insult. 

"Now you see?" McFarland asks, joking with the players around him, saying, "Barreling three streets, that's as thin as it gets folks."

His line looked thin to his opponent but his stack is anything but now, as he's over the 400,000 chip mark with just 15 minutes remaining in this Day 2 session.
