Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Cantu Takes Markhot's First Bullet

[user66118] • Level 4: 100-200, 0 ante

Brandon Cantu and Lee Markholt got it all in before the flop with Markholt the shorter of the stacks. He had {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades}, flipping for double or nothing against Cantu's {Q-Spades} {Q-Clubs}.

The board ran out {9-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {5-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}, and Cantu's pair held up to earn him the pot. It moves him up to about 22,000 now (12,000 in chips plus two lammers), and Markholt was out of actual chips. He still had both of his rebuy chips, though, and he quickly cashed one of them in by yelling, "Rebuy!"
