Event 2: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

The Rise of Mercier


Jason Mercier has been on the rise in the last level as he went from just 8,000 chips all the way up to 48,000. He told us what happened and we quickly wrote down what the champ had to say.

First he jammed from the button with {Q-}{10-} and the big blind called with {A-}{K-}. "I won", Mercier said as he moved on to the next big pot. Mercier raised with {A-}{J-} and got called by a short stack after which the flop brought out {A-}{4-}{4-}. Mercier bet 1,100 and his opponent moved all-in for 8,000 chips. Mercier called and was up against {2-}{2-}. He won.

The third and final hand he told us started with an under the gun raise from Mercier. The big blind called and on a {A-}{2-}{5-}{A-}{10-} board his opponent check-called on all streets. "The river was all-in", Mercier said who is now sitting pretty comfortable with an above average stack.
