Dan Smith has just eliminated the man currently ranked number one in the Global Poker Index - Jason Mercier. We joined the action at the death knell with the board displaying . Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier had bet 18,000 and Dan Smith had moved all-in. Mercier called and then mucked his cards, unseen, after Smith turned over for the full house. Mercier handed all of his stack to Smith including Sammy the Seahorse.
"Don't give him that bad luck charm," said Negreanu as Mercier left the table.
Listening to the table talk we do not expect Mercier to buy back in.
