Mercier Eliminates Trickett

Philipp Gruissem opened with a preflop raise and Jason Mercier three-bet the action to 12,900. It folded around to Sam Trickett in the big blind, who, after a moment or so, moved out a four-bet to 25,800.

Gruissem folded his hand and Mercier announced a five-bet all in. Trickett called and was at risk for his tournament life.

Trickett: {A-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Mercier: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}

The board fell {5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Trickett was unable to improve. He was forced to ship the rest of his stack over to Mercier who is now sitting on about 290,000.
