Greg Merson took the WSOP by storm in 2012, winning the main event, the $10,000 six-max and Player of the Year honors. The online cash game superstar has said he's not a fan of tournaments, and that's why you won't see Merson day in and day out at the WSOP felt. You will see Merson in a few hand-picked events at the Rio, and whenever he's playing, you know he has a good a shot as anyone.
Since his WSOP victory, Merson has spent a lot of time traveling. He was part of the Caesars Cup team that represented the Americas, played in multi-hundred-thousand-dollar pots in Macau, threw out the first pitch at an Orioles game and continued to share his challenges and accomplishments with people around the world. Merson is a true talent in the game with newly polished bankroll management skills than many can respect.
