$250,000 Super High Roller

Battle of the Blinds

• Level 6: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Action folded around to Gus Hansen in the small blind and he raised to 22,000, which Jason Mercier called from the big. Both players checked the {10-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{K-Spades} flop, bringing about the {Q-Hearts} river. Again Hansen checked, and this time Mercier fired out 19,000. The "Great Dane" laid down his hand and Mercier took a small one.
