Jesse Sylvia had the button to start this hand. He folded, and Jake Balsiger limped in from the small blind. Greg Merson raised to three million from the big blind, then Balsiger reraised to eight million. Merson reraised to 14.5, creating quite the pot preflop.
Action was now back on Balsiger, but he couldn't stand the heat and folded his hand. Merson scooped the pot.
