$100,000 Super High Roller

Newey's New Start


Jason Mercier opened to 6,000 from early position, Paul Newey defended his big blind, and the dealer spread {a-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. Newey led out for 8,500, and Mercier raised to 25,700. Newey called.

The turn was the {6-Spades}, and Newey tanked for a minute or so before checking. Mercier tossed out 25,700, and Newey check-raised all in for around 80,000. Mercier wasn't happy about it, but plopped forward enough blue T5,000 chips to make the call.

Newey: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Mercier: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}

The {7-Diamonds} on the river was a brick, and Newey was eliminated.

"I'd rather just start again," Newey told the table as he headed to re-enter the tournament.

Mercier is now up around 470,000 chips.
