Lobzhanidze Busts Merson

Greg Merson - Eliminated
Greg Merson - Eliminated

Day 1a chip leader Maxim Lobzhanidze has just busted 2012 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Merson. He explained the hand to us via a translation from his brother Andrey Lobzhanidze, who Merson happened to have busted earlier in the day.

According to Lobzhanidze, the chips got into the middle with the board reading {A-}{10-}{4-}{6-} with two spades. Merson was ahead with {A-}{K-} against Lobzhanidze's {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}, but the {2-Spades} river made Lobzhanidze a flush to end Merson's PCA Main Event.
