$250,000 Super High Roller

First Hand at the Final Table

• Level 7: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

In the first hand at the final table, Jason Mercier was under the gun and opened for 20,000. Dan Smith then three-bet to 40,000 from middle position, Mercier called, and the flop fell {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. Mercier check-called a bet of 25,000, and the check-folded to a 56,000 bet on the {7-Hearts} turn.

First blood to Smith.
