Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Mercier Tank-Folds

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

We caught the action on the {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} flop when Jason Mercier called his opponents 3,300-chip bet in position. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and this time the player checked. Mercier took the hint and bet 5,700 before being check-raised all in. It was 39,000 more for Mercier to call and he went deep into the tank. Conversation began among the two competitors and Mercier had a few looks of confusion on his face before finally deciding to let go of his hand. The chips were raked to his opponent and before mucking his hand he flashed the {q-Spades}. That made Mercier wince a little but he has 59,000 in chips nonetheless.
