Merson Mashed by Merichko

Greg Merson is done and dusted

Well that was quick.

A short time after noting Greg Merson's presence in the Brasilia Room, we saw him stand and make a quick exit from the table, his attempt to run up a short stack thwarted by Michael Merichko.

According to Merichko, he was holding the button when he woke up with {j-}{j-}, and with a pocket pair in the hole he open-shoved for his last 7,000.

Merson had a pocket pair of his own in {8-}{8-} and he called off his last 3,500 or so, but a clean runout left him with the second-best hand.
