Allen Lanier - Seventh Place

Leon Morford opened for 100,000, and Allen Lanier jammed for about 450,000. Action folded back to Morford, who immediately called.

"That sucks," Lanier said, knowing he was in trouble.

Morford: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
Lanier: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Lanier found help on the {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop, but he was unable to improve past the aces on the {9-Hearts} and {5-Diamonds}.

The next hand, he went all in for his last 6,000 under the gun. Brian Zimcosky raised to 100,000 from middle position, and Ken Baime and Leon Morford called from the button and the big blind, respectively. After a flop of {q-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Clubs}, Zimcosky bet 160,000, and Baime shoved. Morford folded, and Zimcosky immediately called.

Zimcosky: {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Baime: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Lanier: {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Baime had coolered Zimcosky, while Lanier was drawing live with a straight draw. The {10-Clubs} filled that draw, and a {6-Spades} river was a brick, so Baime doubled up on the side while Lanier survived.

Lanier doubled up once more in a blind battle with {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} against Morford's {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, but two hands later he shipped the button with 110,000 and was called by Zimcosky in the big blind.

Zimcosky: {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Lanier: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Lanier had found ace-king once more, amazingly enough, but the flop came {q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{q-Hearts}.

"That's a good flop for you," Lanier said dryly.

"It is," Zimcosky said, and the turn brought a {9-Hearts} that left Lanier dead. The players shook hands.
