Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Robert Mizrachi Doubles Through Jason Mercier

Jason Mercier opened for 19,000 from middle position and Robert Mizrachi three-bet to 55,000 from the button. Mercier four-bet shoved and Mizrachi called all-in for 338,000.

Mizrachi {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Mercier {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Typically, the dealer holds up before dealing out the board while ESPN's crew gets into place. The cameras were still swarming when the dealer spread out the {Q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop, and then burned and turned the {K-Spades}, leaving Mercier drawing dead.

"Wait!!!" a producer screamed, trying to hold up the deal, but it was too late. A tortured Mercier had to endure the pomp and circumstance before the {9-Hearts} arrived on the river, giving Mizrachi a double-up to 690,000. Mercier was left with 133,000.
