Alexander Lynskey is an Australian professional poker player who lives in Brisbane, Queensland.

He began his live career in 2011 after spending his earlier years grinding MTTs online. He notched cashes on the ANZPT tour and the Aussie Millions, before travelling to Las Vegas to play the WSOP for the first time in 2015.

Throughout his career, both online and live, Alexander Lynskey has put in a high volume of online MTTs, and has enjoyed a lot of success, mostly in Holdem.

His live accomplishments are equally impressive, as he has over $1 Million in live cashes. While his earlier cashes remained small, Lynskey had his first large live cash in 2015, when he won USD$94,816 for a 9th place finish at the Aussie Millions Main Event.

Later that year, 6th place in a WPT event netted him a further USD$135,504 which was later eclipsed by a USD$311,530 score for 4th place at the Aussie Millions Main Event. Lynskey added another USD$165,308 at the APC later that same year, before adding several cashes at the 2016 WSOP. He remains very active online and live.
