Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Mercier Chipping Away

• Level 6: 800-1,600, 0 ante

Jason Mercier was in trouble early in his match with Gus Hansen, but the tides are turning. We were too far away to see the hand, but we did just spot Mercier doubling up through his opponent to take a 2:1 lead. It's about 96,000 to 54,000 by our eyeballs.
