€5,300 Main Event

The Home Team Takes a Hit

Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier is looking for a second-chance event, and now considering the €20 media tournament on the schedule in Monaco this evening, after getting unlucky to bust out of the Main Event moments ago.

He raised it up to 2,400 with 16,500 behind and the big blind was the only caller. The big blind checked the {a-}{k-}{7-} flop with two diamonds, then shoved in after Mercier bet 4,000. Mercier called it off ahead, holding the {a-Hearts}{10-Spades} versus the {a-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and even held through the {9-Diamonds} turn.

However, the {3-Diamonds} river proved kryptonite for poker's superman, sending him to an early shower.
