Thomas Doubles Through Merson

Action folded around to Greg Merson on the button and he raised to 125,000, which Russell Thomas three-bet to 310,000 from the small blind. The big blind got out of the way, Merson four-bet 555,000, Thomas moved all in for 2.1 million, and Merson made the call.



Merson was ahead with big slick, but the {6-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{Q-Clubs} hit Thomas by pairing his eight. What's more, the {9-Clubs} gave Thomas a flush draw and took away some of Merson's outs. The {9-Spades} ended up blanking on the river, and Thomas scored the come-from-behind double.
