There is 7,200 in the pot and the board reads 8diamond6diamond5clubJclub when Lee Markholt bets 5,000 under the gun. A player in middle position folds and John Hennigan raises to 11,000 in late position.

Markholt calls and the 10club follows on the river. Hennigan bets 11,000 again and Markholt eventually calls once more. Markholt holds 6heart5heart but he is behind the 8spade8club of Hennigan.

John Hennigan - 73,000 (91 bb)
Lee Markholt - 134,000 (167 bb)

Unofficial Field Size: 328 Entries

Level 7: 400-800, 100 ante

Official entry numbers won't be available until the full prizepool is released by the casino, but registration has closed and the unofficial field size is 328 entries.

The total buy-in of $15,400 was enough to cover the $5 million prizepool, but the rake is reduced quite a bit.

If the total field size holds up as official, then this $15,000 + $400 event will effectively become a $15,244 + $156.
