Michael Marckx Eliminated in 12th Place ($23,202)

Michael Marckx

Viktor Skoldstedt raised to 32,000 and Michael Marckx called from the cutoff to see a {2-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop. Skoldstedt continued with a bet of 42,000 and Marckx raised to 100,000 before the Swede moved all in. Marckx threw back his hands, sighed, and eventually folded after one minute.

Only one hand later Marckx was all in for approximately 200,000 and Eric Shanks one seat over moved all in as well. All three players behind them mucked their cards and Marckx was looking for an ace.

Marckx: {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Shanks: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

After the {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop, a ten would help Marckx and he got exactly that with the {10-Diamonds} on the turn. One card from a possible comeback, he started cheering. However, the brutal {K-Clubs} river gave Shanks the better full house and eliminated Marckx in 12th place.
