Jesse Sylvia had the button. He limped in, and Greg Merson checked to see the {6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop. Merson check-called a bet of 2.5 million, and the turn brought the {10-Diamonds}. Merson checked, and Sylvia checked back.

The {4-Hearts} landed on the river, and Merson led for 5.5 million. Sylvia folded, and Merson won the pot.
