It's been a tough day for Jason Mercier. He came in with high hopes on the day, as he was coming back to a 50,000 stack in the $1,500 re-entry, and a 32,000 stack in the $5,000 stud. However, he busted out of both of those within the first few hours of play, so he hopped over here and entered this event. Well we just saw him making his rounds on the floor, before heading for the exits. We managed to grab him just before he left.
He told us that he had about 12,000 when he picked up . He got it in on a flop of with two clubs against a player who had with two clubs in his hand. Mercier was looking to dodge a club to survive, which he did, but an eight on the river completed his opponent's straight. Mercier will have to wait till tomorrow to, as he puts it, hunt for his third bracelet.
