Lee Markholt Out in 36th Place ($11,865)

Aug 27, 2014

After a flop of [8h7d2d], WPT Champions Club member Matt Salsberg checks the big blind, WPT Champions Club member Lee Markholt bets 25,000 from the button, and Salsberg check-raises to 50,000.

Markholt moves all in for 282,000, and Salsberg tanks for a while until somebody calls for a clock. Salsberg calls with [Ks8d] for a pair of eights, but Markholt turns over [10d10h] for an overpair. Markholt needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card is the [4c], the river card is the [Kd], and Salsberg rivers two pair, kings and eights, to eliminate Markholt in 36th place.

Matt Salsberg  –  870,000  (108 bb)
Lee Markholt  –  Eliminated in 36th Place  ($11,865)
