Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Mercier No More

Prominent poker pro Jason Mercier is no longer involved in this tournament and we were there to catch his bust out. At the time, the board showed {5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Mercier was calling the last of his chips when Mark Burford fired out a bet.

Mercier held {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, his pair of queens well ahead of the {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} that Burford held. However, that all changed on the river, as a {4-Spades} gave Burford the two-pair and all of Mercier's chips.
