Hand #205: Merson Flops a Boat

SantanaBandana • Level 38: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante
Greg Merson

Jesse Sylvia started the hand with the button, and opened to 1.6 million. Greg Merson defended his big blind, and the flop was {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {5-Hearts}, and both players checked again.

The {2-Clubs} completed the board, Merson led out for 2.9 million, and Sylvia went into the tank. After a few minutes, he rested his cheek in his right hand and began talking to Merson. Merson didn't answer. Sylvia then turned his attention to the board, and made the call.

Merson turned over {k-Hearts}{8-Spades} for the second nuts, and Sylvia mucked his hand.
