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

Merson Lays One Down

123md • Nivå 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

With an early position raise to 3,500 and two calls before him, Greg Merson three-bet to 11,5000 on the button. The early-position raiser folded, the players in middle position and the cutoff called, and the flop came down {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

Action checked to Merson and he bet 17,000, which both opponents called. The {J-Diamonds} turn fell and action was once again checked to Merson and he bet 28,500 this time. The player in middle position check-raised to 64,000, forcing a fold from the player in the cutoff. Merson went into the tank about about three minutes, but ultimately folded.
