Kamran Survives the 2012 WSOP Champ

Chad_Holloway • Level 9: 600-1,200, 200 ante

We missed the preflop action unfold, but we do know Michael Kamran got his stack of 19,600 all in and was at risk against 2012 World Series of Poker champ Greg Merson.

Merson: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Kamran: {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

The {k-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Hearts} flop paired both players, but Kamran was ahead with aces. That said, Merson had a bunch of outs. Unfortunately for him, and much to the relief of Kamran, neither the {7-Spades} turn nor {5-Spades} river was what he was looking for.

Greg Merson us 98,000 -22,000
Michael Kamran us 50,000 30,400
