Phil Laak Eliminated in 6th Place ($66,918)

[user80015] • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante
Phil Laak is eliminated in 6th place

Hand #23: Brant Hale raised to 65,000 and Michael Drummond called next to act before Phil Laak raised pot to 305,000 from the button. Hale then re-potted to force Drummond out as Laak called all in for 520,000 total.

Laak: {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Hale: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

With Laak in trouble, the {J-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} flop gave him outs to a straight and a flush, but when the turn and river landed the {J-Hearts} and {6-Hearts}, Laak was headed to the rail in 6th place for a $66,918 payday.
