Ben Volpe Eliminated in 18th Place ($28,414)

[user101598] • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Ben Volpe - 18th Place

After losing the vast majority of his stack, Ben Volpe open-shoved on the button with {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, and Lee Markholt looked him up in the small blind with {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}.

The dealer fanned {10-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{k-Hearts} giving Markholt a pair of kings and both players identical straight draws, and the turn was the {6-Spades}. Volpe could no longer win the pot, and only an ace or queen on the river would keep him alive via a chop.

It was not to be as the {8-Spades} bricked off on the river, and Volpe was eliminated.
