Main Event

Mercier Caught


We wish we'd seen more of this pot, but we only walked up to the river of a {8-Spades} {J-Spades} {3-Clubs} {K-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} board in time to see the final actions. There was 20,575 in the middle of the table already, and Jason Mercier had a bet (or a raise, but most probably a bet) of 10,750 out in front of him. He was heads-up with an out-of-position opponent, and Mr. Opponent spent some time mulling it over before dropping the call into the pot.

Mercier rainbowed his airball {A-Spades} {10-Spades} into the air and onto the felt, knowing he'd been snagged. His opponent's {A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} was better, and good enough to take the pot and knock Mercier down to about 16,000.
