Mercier Runs into Trips

After two limpers Jason Mercier decided to raise to 650 and both his opponent called. The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{J-Clubs} and the action got checked to Mercier. He bet 375 and the first limper folded. The second limper counted out some chips and made it 1,250 and Mercier made the call.

On the turn the {K-Spades} hit and Mercier was forced to call 2,000 in order to see the river. The river was the {Q-Spades} and both players decided to check. Mercier's opponent showed {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and after double checking his cards the EPT and WSOP winner decided to fold. Mercier is still off to a good start and up to around 42,000 chips.
