WSOP: $ 8.5 million and the title of world champion for Greg Merson

Members of the October nine joined the poker room of Rio in Las Vegas on October 29 to compete for the title of the Main Event of the World Series of Poker 2012 (WSOP). At the end of a fierce battle, the winner was finally known. This is the American poker pro Greg Merson. This cash game player of 24 years managed to win face to the favorites of the final table. He eliminated Jesse Sylvia during the final duel. The runner-up will have to wait until next year to win the big trophy. However, he was entitled to a reward of $ 5,295,149. About Merson, who also won the prestigious title of world champion of poker 2012, he was also awarded the title of WSOP Player of The Year 2012 and pocketed the enormous sum of $ 8,531,853. With this new gain, Merson now has more than 9.6 million of gains.

Note that the 43th WSOP final table was really fascinating. The public had to wait about 12 hours before they know the three first players. And it took more than ten hours for the champion to stand out. As a reminder, the third place is occupied by Jake Balsiger who cashed for this feat a prize of $ 3,799,073. Russell Thomas, Jeremy Ausmus, Andras Koroknai, Michael Esposito, Rob Salaburu and Steve Gee are respectively in the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9 th position.
