€100,000 Super High Roller

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.
