Event 46 - Commisso Survives Suck Out City!
The drama is finally over here heads just as we were entering an unbelievable 5th hour with more than 200 hands played between the two combatants.
The action heated up right away at the beginning of the hour with Joe Commisso and Richard Lyndaker getting it all again pre flop and this time Commisso was ahead with A♦ 9♠ versus Lyndaker's 10♠ 8♠.
However, the flop fell in Lyndaker's favor with K♥ 8♥ 2♠ and his pair held up on the 5♠ 4♦ turn and river.
Lyndaker grabbed the slight lead until a few hands later it when Commisso got it all in pre flop with A♣ 8♦ against Lyndaker's J♦ 10♣. This time the ace came through when the board showed A♦ 7♣ 5♦ K♥ 7♥ and Lyndaker was crippled.
He still wouldn't go away though, getting it all in facing another Commisso ace and doubling up.
This time it was Q♠ 7♠ for Lyndaker against Commisso's A♠ 8♦ and when the board dropped 10♥ 7♦ 4♣ 4♠ 9♣ Lyndaker was still breathing.
The chip lead was still a healthy 7-1 when they butted heads again after playing the 200th hand heads up. Commisso found another ace to call Lyndaker's shove with, but Lyndaker's king paired up and he doubled again.
A few hands later they were at it again with Commisso holding A♦ 3♦ against Lyndaker's Q♦ J♥ and once again Lyndaker hit.
Eventually the K♠ J♣ 3♣ 6♠ 10♣ board put the match back in Lyndaker's favor with $5.2 million to $2.9 million as the hour came near to a close.
Joe then got it all in with an open ended straight draw against Richard's top pair and hit his money card on the turn to double and turn the tide in his favor with $6.3 million to $1.8 million.
And finally the two got it all in pre flop with Commisso holding A♦ Q♠ against Lyndaker's 7♥ 9♠.
The heads up marathon looked to be over on the Q♥ 4♠ 10♠ flop and was over when the 10♥ turned.
Commisso had won $911,855 for first and piece of WSOP jewelry, while Lyndaker had to settle for the $570,551 second place cash.
