WSOP Main Event champion raised to 30,000 from the hijack and Olivier Busquet three-bet from the button to 75,000. Both blinds folded and Merson four-bet to 165,000. Busquet proceeded to move all in and Merson called for his tournament life worth 546,000. Busquet had him covered by just 8,000 chips.
The board ran out and Merson secured a huge double up leaving Busquet with just a few antes. On the very next hand Busquet was eliminated.
