Dan Smith opened with a raise to 750 and Jason Mercier made the call. Bjorn Lindberg then went all in for 1,550 and the player in the cutoff seat four-bet to 2,625. Smith folded and Mercier made a five-bet of 4,900. The player in the cutoff folded, and Mercier and Lindberg went heads up to a showdown.
Lindberg was in a really bad shape and needed a small miracle to survive. And the miracle happened, as the flop came giving him a straight and instantly putting Lindberg in the lead. The on the turn and on the river made no change and Lindberg survived.
