donpeters • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Alexander Lynskey

The stack of Alexander Lynskey just catapulted all the way to the top of the leaderboard, thanks two two small pots and then an absolutely huge one.

On the first hand, Lynskey limped in from the small blind, and Mikel Habb checked his option out of the big blind to see the flop come down {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Lynskey bet 22,000, and Habb folded.

On the next hand, Dylan Honeyman opened with a raise to 40,000 from under the gun. Lynskey reraised in the cutoff seat to 110,000, and play folded back to Honeyman. He also gave it up, and Lynskey won the pot.

Then, the big one happened, and here's how it went down.

Lynskey kept up his aggressive ways with a raise from the hijack seat to 40,000. Samantha Abernathy reraised to 85,000 out of the small blind, and Lynskey made the call to take the {K-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop. After Abernathy bet 95,000, Lynskey made the call.

The {A-Diamonds} was added to the board on fourth street, and Abernathy kept her foot on the gas with a bet of 225,000. Lynskey stuck around, and the two were delivered the {3-Diamonds} river card. Abernathy took a few moments before she looked at the dealer and announced that she was all in. Lynskey wasted little time in making the call, to which Abernathy responded by revealed her {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} for top set. Unfortunately for her, Lynskey had the {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the nut flush and his hand was the winning one.

Upon counting the stacks, it was determined that Lynskey was all in on the river for 751,000. Abernathy sent over the chips to pay him off and dropped all the way down to about 215,000 in chips.
