Nick Maimone Doubles Through Greg Merson

• Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

On a hand that took both players into the break, Nick Maimone just doubled up through former WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Merson.

Jean-Pascal Savard opened the action with a preflop raise before Maimone shoved from the small blind. Merson called after being in a tank for a few minutes and was ahead with {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and Savard folded.

Maimone had {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, but would win the pot after the board ran out {k-Spades}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{a-Spades}.
