Event #3: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Huge Pot Between Klein and Merson

[user38873] • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

It all escalated on the {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop when things went horribly wrong for Greg Merson in a battle of the blinds. Loren Klein had limped and Merson spiked middle set when the chips went in. Klein turned over {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for top set and the {7-Spades} turn as well as {4-Spades} river both bricked. Merson took a huge hit to his stack and Klein should be the new chip leader now.

Chip Counts
Loren Klein us 360,000 160,000
Greg Merson us 145,000 -170,000
