Jake Balsiger started this hand with the button. He folded, and Greg Merson limped in from the small blind. Jesse Sylvia checked his option in the big blind, which brought the two players to the flop.
On the flop, Merson was first and he checked. Sylvia checked behind to see the fall on fourth street. Merson fired one million, and Sylvia made the call.
The both paired the board on the river and brought in a fourth heart. Merson bet 2.6 million, and Sylvia took his time to think things over. After a couple of long minutes in the tank, Sylvia reached for his water to take a sip. The crowd began to chuckle at this as Sylvia cracked a smile. He sipped his water, put the cap back on, then finally folded, and Merson won the pot.
