Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Ace-King High for Mercier


Jason Mercier raised to 200,000 from under the gun and Richard Yong reraised to 600,000 from the next seat. Everyone else folded back to Mercier and he called.

The flop came down {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Mercier check-called a bet of 625,000 from Yong before seeing the {7-Diamonds} land on the turn. Both checked and they also checked the {J-Spades} on the river.

Mercier showed the {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and Yong the {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. Mercier's hand was best and he won the pot to jump over 11 million.
