Alex Lynskey Eliminated in 7th Place ($1,500,000)

zedmaster84 • Level 37: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante
Alex Lynskey

Hand #47: Michael Dyer raised it up to 1,600,000 in the cutoff and John Cynn called in the small blind. Lynskey moved all in for 11,525,000 out of the big blind and Dyer asked for a count. Dyer folded, Cynn gave it some thought and called.

Alex Lynskey: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
John Cynn: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

Lynskey's rail started shouting for a six and the flop came {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades} to give Cynn a gutshot along with his two over cards. The shouting continued to the {10-Diamonds} turn, giving Cynn even more outs to deal the final blow to Lynskey.

With one card to come, the rails went silent for just a moment, and the {J-Clubs} river sent Lynskey to the rail in seventh place for $1,500,000. Lynskey didn't win a single hand on the day, however, the seven-figure payday will surely ease the pain.

The action for the day will continue until the end of the current level or the next elimination takes place, whichever of the two comes first.
