Mercier's Eights Are Good

We caught up to find the board reading {6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Kyle Julius led for 3,200 only to have Jason Mercier make it 20,800. Julius called and Mercier showed {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}.

"Those are good, too", said Julius

Julius showed his {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} for the second best hand and Mercier was awarded the pot.
