Keith Lehr Eliminated in 2nd Place ($701,757)
One hand. That's all it took to play down to a champion here on Day 4. The final hand of the tournament began with Gregory Merson opening to 280,000 from the button. Keith Lehr then three-bet to 915,000 and Merson quickly shoved his large stack. Lehr called all in and the two players turned their hands over.
Merson's rail cheered out in joy as the flop was dealt, putting Merson in front. It would all change when a hit the turn. Merson's rail then cried for a jack and that's exactly what they got, with the completing the board on the river. With that, Day 4 is all over within a matter of minutes as Merson becomes our latest champion.
