Makholt is Confused


Lee Markholt led out for 2,100 on a board of {8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{k-Clubs}. His opponent tanked, then raised to 5,500.

"I'm confused," Markholt said after half a minute or so. "And when I'm confused, I usually call."

He indeed called, and his opponent turned over {a-Spades}{k-Spades} for kings full of eights.

"Wow," Markholt said. "Nice catch."

He mucked, and is down down around the starting stack of 30,000 chips.
