Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Cards Are Falling For Merson

Greg Merson

Action folded around to the button, who raised to 1,500. Greg Merson, in the small blind, made the call and was followed by an all in from the big blind. The button folded and Merson made the call.

Merson: {A-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Opponent: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Merson was dominated going to {j-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop and not much changed after it was dealt. The {5-Hearts} turn gave Merson flush outs and he found one when the {3-Hearts} river fell, sending his opponent to the rail. As soon as the fourth heart hit the board, Mike Matusow stated the obvious, "and that is Greg Merson, folks".
