It’s official. Greg Merson is the 2012 World Champion.
The 24-year-old professional poker player from Laurel, Maryland celebrated his ultimate moment of triumph at 6 am early on a Wednesday morning, following an all-night marathon playing session that nearly broke the all-time duration record.
Merson’s victory took place at the Penn and Teller Theatre, upon a stage accustomed to acts of magic. But Merson was the poker player with the proverbial magic wand, turning what had started out as a dream into a world championship victory. What began last summer at the Rio Las Vegas, with 6,598 entrants, ranking as the fifth-largest live poker tournament in history, concluded on Halloween morning, October 31st.

Matlam is a small village in Kruthivennu mandal of Krishna District, which has a population of around 6000, consisting of fishermen and daily labor. As the village is located near to the coast, ground water is salinated and non-drinkable. Despite of repetitive requests to the government to provide clean drinking water, the villagers have been forced to buy drinking water from nearby towns. Due to transportation costs, Matlam villagers were buying water at Rs 15 – 18 per 20 liters. This cost has become a burden to the most poor villagers. Each family has been spending Rs. 600-800 per month on water.
