Over on the outer table, Ben Yu raised to 200,000 on the button and Jason Mercier three-bet the pot to 660,000 in the small blind.

"How much do you have behind?" Yu asked and Mercier replied "I have 445,000 behind" after counting his stack carefully. Yu opted to call and the flop came {10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Mercier moved all in and Yu almost beat him into the pot.

Jason Mercier: {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Ben Yu: {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Yu had flopped two pair and the flush draw, and would stay ahead on the {4-Diamonds} turn and {2-Spades} river to eliminate Mercier in 12th place for $77,107.
