LAS VEGAS (AP) — Greg Merson will not repeat as champion of the World Series of Poker main event.
The 25-year-old Merson was knocked out of the tournament Saturday in Las Vegas.
He finished 167th to collect a check for $42,990. Last year, he hauled in $8.5 million.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/13IF3ih ) the $10,000 buy-in, No-Limit Texas Hold ‘em World Championship field of 6,352 players had dwindled to 82 by late Saturday, the fifth day of the tournament at the Rio Convention Center.
Merson’s departure left 2001 champ Carlos Mortensen as the only former main event winner remaining in the field.
Of the final 82 players, there were three women. They included Jackie Glazier of Australia, who won a big hand against Merson on Friday night.
The tournament runs through Monday. Once the field is cut to nine, play will pause until November, when competition at the final table airs live on ESPN.
