Mercier Makes it Happen

Jason Mercier

In a most recent hand Jason Mercier, placed a bet putting his opponent Steven Silverman all in preflop. Silverman quickly called and both players turned over their hole cards.

Mercier: {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Silverman: {q-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

It was basically a coin flip, with either player having a great chance of taking this pot down. A {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop gave Silverman the advantage. Mercier was going to need one of the last two threes in the deck if he wanted to knock out SIlverman.

The miracle {3-Diamonds} on the turn brought a "wow" out of Mercier and the lead. With the {5-Clubs} planting on the river the deed was done and Mercier was awarded the pot.
