Luneau Crippled, Then Doubles

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

After the second draw, Alexandre Luneau checked over to Jason Mercier and he fired out a bet. Luneau called and drew two cards on the final draw. Mercier took one and led out one last time when action checked to him. Luneau called and Mercier tabled a winning {8-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}. Luneau was reduced down to just 46,000 in chips.

Two hands later, Luneau raised from the cutoff and Mercier made it three bets from the button. Action came back to Luneau and he four-bet all in for his last 41,000. Mercier called.

Luneau took one on the first draw and Mercier took two. On the second, Luneau stood pat and Mercier picked up one new card. The third draw saw Luneau stand pat and Mercier draw one last card. Luneau fanned {9-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}.

Mercier tabled {5-}{4-}{3-}{2-} and was drawing live to bust Luneau. He squeezed out his last card.

"Four spot diamond," said Mercier. A dejected look then washed over his face as he flung the {10-Diamonds} on the felt. Luneau's ninety-seven awarded him the double up and he now sits around 100,000.
