Event 57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Keith Lehr Eliminated in 2nd Place ($701,757)

Keith Lehr - 2nd Place

One hand. That's all it took to play down to a champion here on Day 4. The final hand of the tournament began with Gregory Merson opening to 280,000 from the button. Keith Lehr then three-bet to 915,000 and Merson quickly shoved his large stack. Lehr called all in and the two players turned their hands over.

Lehr: {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Merson: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}

Merson's rail cheered out in joy as the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop was dealt, putting Merson in front. It would all change when a {q-Spades} hit the turn. Merson's rail then cried for a jack and that's exactly what they got, with the {j-Hearts} completing the board on the river. With that, Day 4 is all over within a matter of minutes as Merson becomes our latest champion.
