Merson vs. Shack-Harris: One Will Double

Chad_Holloway • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

We picked up the action with approximately 11,000 in the pot on a flop of {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Greg Merson bet 8,500 from the small blind, Brandon Shack-Harris called from the big, and the dealer burned and turned the {4-Spades}.

Merson announced that he was all in and Shack-Harris snap-called off for 39,200.

Merson: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Shack-Harris: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

Both players held an overpair to the board, but Shack-Harris' was best. The {5-Diamonds} river failed to help Merson, and Shack-Harris doubled through the former champ.
