We study the dynamics of countable state topological Markov chains with holes, where the hole is a countable union of 1-cylinders. For a large class of positive recurrent potentials and under natural assumptions on the surviving dynamics, we prove the existence of a limiting conditionally invariant distribution, which is the unique limit of regular densities under the renormalized dynamics conditioned on non-escape. We also prove the existence of a Gibbs measure on the survivor set, the set of points that never enter the hole, which is an equilibrium measure for the punctured potential of the open system. We prove that the Gurevic pressure on the survivor set equals the exponential escape rate from the open system. These results extend to the non-compact setting results previously available for finite state topological Markov chains.
