$8.5 million Poker Game


24 year old Greg Merson is $8.5 million richer and happier. He took part in the most  prestigious event of the world series poker.

He saw of his opponents in a session that went on to almost dawn in a game that last just under 12 hours in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is what he had to say about the win ”I feel pretty good – got all the tears out so now I feel relaxed,”

Jesse Sylvia who finished in second place securing $5.3 million had this to say ”That was nuts, man,”

Jake Balsiger would have become the youngest world series poker champion but he was denied by Greg and Jesse but he walked away with a very healthy $3.8m for finishing third.
