Jason Mercier has just been knocked out of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event. Mercier's summer was filled with big swings as he busted right before the money in the $50,000 Players' Championship and on Day 1 of the Big One for One Drop.
There were also highlights as Mercier cashed in three WSOP events, including a third place finish in the $10,000 2-7 no-limit single draw for $99,313 and second in the Bellagio 100k for $1.6 million.
Just now Mercier hit the rail and we asked the players at his former table what had happened. The player under the gun, Alex Simic, raised to 750 and Mercier three-bet to 1,925. The action folded back to Simic, who called.
The flop came down and Simic led out, Mercier raised and Simic called. On the turn a blank hit and Simic put Mercier, who started the hand with around 22,000 chips, all in. Mercier called all in with and he was up against .
The river brought no help and Mercier was knocked out before the dinner break.
