On the first hand back from break, Lee Markholt raised from middle position and Michael Moncek called in the big blind.

The flop came {7-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and Markholt bet. Moncek then raised enough to put Markholt all in, and Markholt committed his last 70,000.

Lee Markholt: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Michael Moncek: {9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Moncek had outflopped Markholt's jacks by hitting two pair. The turn came the {q-Spades} and Markholt began calling for another queen on the river to get a higher two pair.

Instead, the dealer turned over the {a-Clubs} and Markholt was eliminated in ninth place.

"Was like that all day," Markholt said as he wished the rest of the table luck.
