Greg Merson, 2012 WSOP Gold Bracelet Winner, Looks to Add Main Event Bracelet to Collection

The 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table is set. The nine players are on a three-month hiatus and will find their way back to Las Vegas in October to play for the diamond-encrusted bracelet and the $8.5 million first-place prize.

Greg Merson, 25, is a professional poker player from Laurel, Maryland. Merson already has one WSOP bracelet, that he won in Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em — Six Handed at the 2012 WSOP. Including the $754,798 he is guaranteed for at least ninth place at the 2012 WSOP Main Event Final Table, he has just over $2 million in live tournament cashes.
