Markhot Moves In

Lee Markholt

Lee Markholt and an opponent were heads up on a flop of {8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Markholt led out for 2,550, and his opponent tossed out a yellow T5,000 chip, announcing "raise."

The dealer told him that he had to add an extra black T100 chip to make it a min-raise, and before he could even add the chip, Markholt moved all in for effectively 20,000 or so.

The player lurched back in agony, and dipped into the tank for the better part of two minutes. He finally folded, and Markholt tabled {j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for top pair, an open-ended straight draw, and a backdoor flush draw.
