Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Mercier Doubles

We came upon four players staring at a board of {Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. The small blind led out 2,700 and Sam Trickett called from the big blind.

Jason Mercier had moved all in for 10,950 total and action was on a late position player. He called Mercier's all in bet and the small blind and Tricket got rid of their hands.

"The five hit you?" Trickett asked to the late position player.

Mercier showed {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for a turned set of fives.

"Oh the five hit YOU!" said Trickett.

Mercier's opponent showed {J-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for bottom pair and a flush draw. Fortunately for Mercier the {a-Clubs} rolled off on the river and he was secured a double up.
