Lee Markholt

Lee Markholt raised from the cutoff to 18,000 and Michael Mizrachi three-bet to 40,000 out of the small blind. Markholt called and the flop was 6d4h3h.

Mizrachi moved all in and Markholt quickly called. Markholt was the player at risk, all in for 184,000.

Markholt showed JsJh and needed to fade an ace or a heart against Mizrachi’s Ah8h. The turn was the 2d and the river was the 2h.

Mizrachi rivered the nut flush to eliminate Markholt in 10th place. The final nine players are all in the money, while Markholt is the unfortunate bubble boy.

There is a short break in the action while players redraw for seats at the final table.

Michael Mizrachi – 705,000 (88 bb)
Lee Markholt – Eliminated
