Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Lee Markholt Eliminated in 16th Place ($43,976)

Lee Markhholt (16th Place- $43,976)

Action folded to Lee Markholt in the cutoff and he raised to 37,000. It was enough to get the button out, but Ben Tollerene opted for a three-bet to 82,000 in the small blind. Action folded back to Markholt and he took his time before stacking some chips and sliding in a four-bet to around 340,000. Tollerene immediately moved all in, Markholt called off his remaining 200,000, and the cards were turned up.

Markholt: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Tollerene: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

It was a classic flip for the former rodeo cowboy's tournament life, and he seemed a bit relieved when the {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop missed Tollerene; however, Markholt's enthusiasm quickly faded when the {A-Diamonds} spiked on the turn. The {6-Hearts} river sent him to the rail in 16th place while Tollerene extended his chip lead to over 2.2 million.
