Event #19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Double Knockout for Merkow

LaneAnderson • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

In a massive three-way all in, Frank Fehsenfeld pushed from under the gun and Loni Harwood came over the top sitting on his left. They knew they were in trouble when Gregg Merkow pushed his big stack from middle position.

Fehsenfeld: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Harwood: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Merkow: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

Merkow didn't win the pot without a sweat, having to fade a ton of outs on the river. The board fell in his favor though: {2-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Merkow is now sitting on a healthy pile of chips to carry him into the final three tables.
