Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Merson Raises Perkins

[user68268] • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

Eric Worre limped in from early position, and then Greg Merson raised to 675 from the next seat. Action folded to Bill Perkins in the big blind, and he reraised to 1,800. After Worre folded, Merson called.

The flop was {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, and both Perkins and Merson checked to see the {Q-Diamonds} fall on the turn. After Perkins led with a bet of 2,200, Merson raised to 5,700. Perkins had a little over 17,000 behind and went into the tank. Merson, who had a little under 11,000 behind, waited patiently while riffling chips with both hands.

Eventually, Perkins folded, and Merson pulled in the pot.
