Merson Doubles Big Through Watson

Cylus Watson raised to 350,000 under the gun only to have Greg Merson three-bet to 775,000. Watson responded by four-betting to 1.9 million, Merson moved all in for 7.2 million, and after some thought, Watson made the call.



It was a flip for a nearly 14.5-million chip pot. The crowd around the ESPN Main Stage was on its feet as the flop came down {4-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, a blank as far as Watson was concerned. The {3-Hearts} turn was of no consequence, and Merson needed to dodge an ace and king on the river to survive.

That's exactly what he did as the {7-Diamonds} peeled off; meanwhile, Watson was left with under a million.
