WSOP 2012 Final Hand

WSOP 2012 Final Hand

Greg Merson K-Diamonds 5-Diamonds versus Jesse Sylvia Q-Spades J-Spades

The final hand found Greg Merson min raising to 4 million on the button and Sylvia three-betting to 9.5 million. Merson moved all-in and Sylvia exclaimed, "Wow!" Sylvia took a moment to think it over and stared down Merson but Merson gave up nothing. Finally, Sylvia called.

Merson: {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Sylvia: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

With a massive 139.2 million chip-pot in the middle, Sylvia would need help to stay in the game since Merson was in the lead.

The Flop brought the {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Spades} - no help for Sylvia and Merson was only two cards away from being crowned the 2012 WSOP Main Event Champion.

The turn peeled off the {6-Spades}.

The audience in the Penn & Teller Theater were on the edge of their seats as the River brought the {7-Clubs}.

It was official — Greg Merson was officially crowned the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion!
