Sabat Bests Mercier

Jason Mercier

We all know Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier has won a lot of tournament titles in his short poker career, but Eddy Sabat has one he doesn't — an APPT title. On this hand, Sabat and Mercier did battle with Sabat coming out on top.

Sabat fired a bet of 725 on the {K-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop. A second player folded in between Sabat and Mercier before the South Florida boy wonder made the call.

The turn was the {A-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {8-Diamonds} land on the river. Sabat fired a bet of 1,825 and the "always wearing at least one piece of Miami sports apparel" Mercier mucked his hand.
