Johnston Knocks Out Riess and Merson

zedmaster84 • Level 12: 800-1,600, 0 ante
Greg Merson

A preflop raising war saw several raise the pot and Richard Johnston, Greg Merson as well as Ryan Riess were all in. Riess was the short stack whereas Merson had around 75,000 in chips and Johnston had them both covered with more than 90,000 in chips.

Riess: {A-Hearts} {K-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {K-Spades}
Merson: {A-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}
Johnston: {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds}

Johnston was ahead preflop and also picked up an additional flush draw on the {3-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} flop. The {8-Clubs} on the turn changed nothing and the {J-Hearts} river reduced the field to 14.
