Ship a Million to Mercier

[user153638]

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.
