Prior to dinner we told reported a hand that left Greg Merson with just 50,000 in chips. It seemed as if he was on elimination's doorstep, but it appears now as if now one answered that knock as he has chipped up to 780,000.
In a recent hand, Merson opened for 55,000 from the hijack only to have Alban Juen three-bet to 117,000 from the big blind. Merson immediately announced he was all in, and Juen instantly flicked his cards to the muck. With that, Merson has chipped back up to 780,000 and back into contention.
