Connor Drinan

The cards were on their backs between Jason Mercier and Connor Drinan. Mercier enjoyed a sterling summer and was looking to continue his run into the new EPT season.

In this hand Mercier was ahead with {k-Hearts}{k-Spades} against Drinan's {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. The flop of {7-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{q-Spades} looked safe for the five-time bracelet winner and former EPT Sanremo Champion. However, the {8-Spades} on the turn gave Drinan an open-ended straight draw. The river was the {j-Hearts} and Drinan doubled up.
