Event #35: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha / Six Handed

Ship a Million to Mercier


Hans Winzeler raised to 160,000 on the button only to have Jason Mercier make it 480,000 to go from the big blind. Winzeler made the call and there was nearly a million in the pot preflop. Just when it seemed like there might be some fireworks, both players checked the {2-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop, as well as the {4-Spades} turn.

When the {10-Clubs} hit the river, Mercier decided it was time to put out a bet, settling on 530,000. Winzeler didn't take long to make the call, but ended up mucking when Mercier turned over {J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for a straight.
