Hands #1-5: Mercier Picking Up Pots

[user80015] • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 3,000 ante

Hand #1: The action folded to Jason Mercier and he raised to 20,000 and John Monnette made the call from the big blind.

Monnette drew two and Mercier drew one with Monnette checking to Mercier as he dropped in a bet of 32,000. Monnette cut down his stack a few times before tossing in the call. Mercier tabled his {10-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}, and Monnette mucked.

Hand #2: Jason Mercier raised to 20,000 from under the gun and Paul Volpe made the call. Mercier discarded two and Volpe drew one. Mercier then checked, and when Volpe bet out 32,000 Mercier quickly called and tabled his {9-}{8-}{7-}{4-}{3-}. Volpe just as quickly mucked.

Hand #3: Paul Volpe opened to 22,000 and Larry Wright called from the small blind and discarded one as Volpe drew two.

Wright pushed out a bet of 32,000 and Volpe made the call. Wright tabled his {10-}{9-}{6-}{5-}{4-} and Volpe mucked.

Hand #4: From the cutoff, John Monnette moved all in for roughly 100,000 and won the blinds and antes.

Hand #5: Paul Volpe raised to 23,000 from under the gun and Brian Rast called from the big blind and drew three as Volpe stood pat.

Both players checked and Volpe tabled his {J-}{9-}{6-}{3-}{2-} to prompt a muck from Rast.
