Early One for Mercier

Jason Mercier and Sammy the Seahorse

Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier just picked up the first pot at his table and it was a nice one. Maybe it has to do with the new chip protector he's brought out for this even — a bright yellow and orange sponge seahorse that stands about four inches tall.

Action folded to Anton Allemann on the button and he raised to 2,500. Mercier three-bet from the small blind to 7,700. Allemann tanked for a minute, then called to take the {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop. Mercier fired 4,200 and Allemann called.

The turn card was the {4-Spades} and Mercier bet 10,200. Allemann gave it a bit of thought, then folded.
