Vanik Matousian Crippled, Eliminated in 7th Place ($19,420)

After a raise from Vanik Matousian in late position, Maxwell Lineberger moved all in for his final 6.6 million. Matousian called, and the cards were flipped.

Lineberger: [Ah][Qd]
Matousian: [Kc][Jd]

The flop of [Qs][9h][8d] gave Lineberger top pair, but also gave Matousian a straight draw. The [Jh] on the turn gave him a few extra outs, but the [As] completed the board, giving Lineberger the double up to 13.5 million.

Matousian was left with just 1.2 million, and he got those chips in on the next hand holding [10c][4c]. He was on rough shape against the [7s][7h] of Joe Nalbandyan, and the board ran down [Kd][Qs][2h][8d][8s].

This leaves us with six players. A couple players suggested they look at the numbers, but that proposal was shot down, so we carry on.
