Jason Mercier raised under the gun to 8,500 and Elio Fox three-bet to 21,000. The action was folded back to Mercier who made the call.
The flop came down and both players checked. On the turn the hit and Mercier checked. Fox bet 24,000 and Mercier decided to raise up to 55,500. Fox tanked for a bit and called.
On the river the hit and Mercier fired out 87,000. Fox tanked for quite some time, but eventually laid his hand down. We are very close to the money, and last year's champion is still in the hunt.
