Faraz Jaka

Faraz Jaka and Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier just clashed in the biggest pot of the tournament!

The action started when Mercier raised to 12,000 from the button, and Jaka three-bet from the small blind to 31,000. The big blind folded, and Mercier made the call.

The flop brought the {6-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{J-Hearts}, and this soon proved to be a set up for disaster for Jaka. He fired out 39,000, and Mercier decided to raise it up to 93,000. Jaka tanked for a bit before making it 205,000. Mercier moved all in, and Jaka made the call.

Jaka: {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Mercier: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Jaka had a huge draw against Mercier's set, but the turn brought the {3-Diamonds}, which kept the set of sixes in front. On the river, the {A-Diamonds} hit, and that was it for Jaka. He missed his big draw and was left with just ten high, giving Mercier the pot. Jaka was all in for around 650,000, and this pot was worth around 1.5 million chips. Mercier is now up to 1.9 million chips with 12.5 million in play.
