Prior to dinner, Sam Trickett lost most of his stack after losing a flip to Sorel Mizzi. Some of the players placed bets on Trickett coming back to win, including Jason Mercier, but that is not going to happen.
In a recent hand, Trickett moved all in from the button for 53,500 and was called by Mercier in the big blind.
The flop was no help to Trickett, while the gave Mercier a straight. Trickett could still win with a nine on the river, but it was not in the cards as the appeared. Trickett, who finished as runner up in this very event last year, was eliminated in 12th place.
"How big of a fish am I?" Mercier asked after the hand. "I Bet on him, then bust him!"
