Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Four Bracelet Winners

World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winners Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier are arguably two of the greatest poker players alive today. The playful and powerful pair are both seated next to each other at Table #17. Negreanu is in the number one seat with 20,000 chips and Mercier is in the two seat holding 21,000.

Making up the first trio of players, at that table, is Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick is a pro from the UK and his biggest cash to date came in this event last year where he finished in 4th place for $198,927.

Making up the table are two World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winners. Nenad Medic takes up seat 7 and Steve Billirakis in seat 8. Here is Medic and Mercier having some fun.

Medic made it 750 from early position and three players called (including Mercier in the cutoff). The flop was {J-Hearts} {8-Spades} {7-Hearts} and the action checked to Mercier who bet 1,675. A few folds later and Medic check-raised to 4,000, Mercier mucked his hand and Medic cheekily flashed him the {9-Hearts}.
