Walter Lynch Eliminated in 6th Place ($5,850)

On a heads-up flop of [Qc5d9c], Walter Lynch bet 475,000 but then Peter Tran moved all in to cover. Lynch checked his hand one more time before he shrugged and made the call, putting his tournament life on the line.

Lynch tabled [Khqd] for top pair and is up against [Jc8c] for a gutter and flush combo draw.

The turn [5c] immediately gives Tran the flush, but Lynch can still hit a queen or a five to win with a full house.

Alas, the river was the [Ks] and he was sent to the payout desk while Tran raked in the pot.

Peter Tran - 8,200,000

Walter Lynch - Eliminated
