Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Keep Diggin' Watson


When we reached the table, {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts} was laying in front of Cylus Watson, and the board read {5-Spades}{q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. Watson was raking in a massive pot after a three-way all in, where Steve Merrifield had ace-king, and John O'Shea, who had already left, evidently had {a-}{9-}.

Watson increased his stack to 1.65 million, while Merrifield sunk to 630,000, and O'Shea is out.
