Aces and Jacks

[user68268] • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante

From middle position, Andrea Dato raised to 1,025. Lorenzo Sabato called form the hijack seat, then Jason Mercier called from the big blind.

On the {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop, Mercier and Dato checked before Sabato fired 1,650. Both of his opponents made the call.

The turn was the {8-Diamonds} to pair the board, and everyone checked. All three also checked the {5-Hearts} that added another pair to the board on the river.

Sabato showed the {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}, but Dato's {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} was better. Mercier couldn't beat either and mucked his hand.
