Mercier's Opponent Checks Back with Straight

Jason Mercier opened to 800 from the cutoff seat and the player on the button made the call. Everyone else folded and the flop came down {8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Mercier fired 775 and his opponent called.

The turn card was the {2-Clubs} and both players checked. They also checked when the {6-Diamonds} landed on the river.

Mercier tabled the {K-Spades}{6-Spades} first for a pair of sixes. His opponent held the {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for a straight that he had checked behind on the river and won the pot.
