Two Pair for Merson


Greg Merson raised to 250,000 from the cutoff, and Jesse Sylvia and Jamie Robbins called from the button and big blind respectively. The {9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop saw action go check-check to Sylvia, who bet 340,000. Only Merson made the call and it was heads-up to the {6-Hearts} turn, which both players checked.

The {5-Diamonds} river saw Merson lead out for 525,000, and after a long pause, Sylvia raised to 1.14 million. After a call was made, Sylvia sheepishly revealed {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}, which was no good against Merson's {6-Clubs}{7-Spades}.
