Merson Fires Once, Twice, Then Folds


Greg Merson opened for 3,200 then saw an opponent sitting three seats down in late position raise to 6,200. It came back to Merson who four-bet to 19,000, and his opponent called.

The flop came {5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}, and when Merson fired 14,300, his opponent called. The turn brought the {5-Spades} and another bet from Merson — this time for 24,600 — and once more his opponent called.

The river was the {J-Hearts}, and this time Merson slowed down to check. His opponent wasted little time declaring he was all in, and without much pause Merson let his hand go, saying "ace-king suited" afterwards.
