Hands 100-103: Markholt Doubles Through Drinan

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Lee Markholt Just Doubled Through Connor Drinan

Hand #100: Lindgren received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #101: Markholt raised to 85,000 from under the gun, and the action folded back to Drinan in the big blind. He flatted to see the flop of {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{k-Clubs} hit the table. Both players checked the action flop, and the {4-Hearts} was the turn card. Drinan led out for 80,000, which was enough to earn the pot.

Hand #102: Little opened for 80,000 from under the gun, but mucked when Drinan reraised to 220,000.

Hand #103: Drinan raised his button to 85,000, Markholt three-bet to 260,000 from the small blind, and Little folded his big blind. When the action was back on him, Drinan quickly four-bet shoved to put Markholt all in, and he snap-called for his last 1.28 million.

Showdown:

Drinan: {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Markholt: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}

Drinan tried to bully the man with aces, and his queen-high was way behind. The flop of {6-Spades}{k-Hearts}{8-Spades} left him drawing thin, and the {2-Diamonds} on the turn left him drawing dead. After the {3-Hearts} was dropped on the river, Markholt retook his seat with a newly replenished chip stack awaiting him.
