Mihai Niste Eliminated by Jason Mercier

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Jason Mercier

Mihai Niste raised to 16,000 under the gun and it folded to Jason Mercier who eyed Nista's stack before he three-bet to 47,000.

It folded back to Niste who four-bet all in for 179,000 and Mercier called.

Mihiai Niste: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Jason Mercier: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

The flop came {8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, with no help for Mercier. The {10-Spades} on the turn meant that Mercier would have to hit an ace or a king on the river to eliminate Niste.

The river was the {a-Clubs} and Niste was eliminated by one of the reigning EPT champions still in the Main Event field.
