Lee Markholt


Brian Hastings opened from the cutoff, Lee Markholt called from the small blind, and the flop came down {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}.

The action was checked to Hastings who fired in a bet and was instantly raised by Markholt. Hastings made the call and the turn fell the {5-Hearts}.

Markholt now moved all in for his remaining 65,000 and Hastings went into the tank. After a few minutes of thought, Hastings made the call and the players turned over their hands.

Markholt turned over {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} for a pair of tens with king high and Hastings tabled {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} for tens over threes. The river came down the {q-Hearts} and Hastings' threes took down the pot, eliminating Markholt in the process.
