Andras Koroknai is eliminated in 6th place.

Hand #109:

Greg Merson had the button. Action folded to him, and he raised to one million. Jesse Sylvia reraised from the small blind to 2.6 million. In the big blind, Andras Koroknai reraised and made it 5.3 million to go. Merson didn't go anywhere. He reraised to 9.2 million. That folded out Sylvia, then Koroknai moved all in. Merson quickly called, creating a massive, massive pot.

Koroknai turned over the {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, but he was very much dominated by the {A-Spades}{K-Spades} for Merson.

On the flop, the {8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs} landed, and Merson stayed in front. The turn was the {7-Spades} taking away the queen of spades as an out for Koroknai. The dealer burned one last time, and then dealt the {7-Hearts} on the river.

Merson's cheering section erupted in joy as Merson stormed his way to over 80 million in chips. Koroknai was eliminated in sixth place and took home $1,640,902.
