24-year-old Greg Merson was born in Laurel, Maryland and moved to Toronto, Canada because of the banishment for US players on online poker clients. The young profi player was down to a few big blind on day 5 of the Main Event but was able to double up his stack a few times and to fight his way back in the tournament. Now he is one of the final nine players.
