Event #3: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em SHOOTOUT

Markholt First Casualty of the Day

poolshir • Level 16: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Lee Markholt

The board read {J-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} and there was about 60,000 in the middle already.

Arkadiy Tsinis shoved all in from under the gun and Lee Markholt had to make a decision. If he called, he would be at risk of being eliminated. He kept staring at the board and glancing at Tsinis. After about two minutes, Markholt threw in a 100-value chip as a call.

Tsinis flipped over {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the turned straight. Markholt looked at his own cards again but then got up and mucked them. Harry Lodge told the dealer that the cards had to be shown. The dealer turned over Markholt's cards which were {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} for top pair, and he is out.
