Q&A with World Series of Poker winner Greg Merson
Life has accelerated quickly for Laurel native Greg Merson in the wake of his $8.5 million victory last week in the World Series of Poker Main Event. As champion, Merson got to luxuriate in a free villa provided by the Rio Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, where the tournament was held. He spent part of the day after his victory being ferried around the city in a Rolls-Royce by new sponsor IveyPoker, an online venture recently launched by the world's best player, Phil Ivey. But the former University of Maryland student nonetheless made a little time to call The Baltimore Sun and reflect on his experiences at poker's biggest event.
