The 2012 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Merson has been one of the short stacks for much of the last level or so, but that is no longer the case as he has recently made a great call to snag a nice double up.

The hand started with Merson opening it up to 60,000 from middle position. Sorel Mizzi called from the button and so too did Fenglei Qian from the big blind. On the {2-Hearts}{a-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop, Qian checked and Merson bet 130,000. Mizzi quickly folded, while Qian made the call. The {10-Clubs} would see both players check and a {k-Spades} would complete the board.

On the river, Qian slammed down a massive stack of 100,000-denomination chips, which was enough to put Merson all in. Merson went into the tank here, eventually calling off his remaining 654,000. At showdown, Qian tabled {8-Spades}{3-Clubs} for just a pair of threes, while Merson held {10-Spades}{9-Spades} for a pair of tens. Just like that, Merson is back up to around 1.5 million in chips.
