Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Mercier Wins a Race

While strolling through the Pavilion, we came across Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier who had all of his chips in the middle holding {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}. His opponent held {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} and we were off to the races.

Mercier took the lead on the {Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}{A-Spades} flop and retained it through the {4-Clubs} turn and the {A-Hearts} river. His trip aces were enough to score a double up, boosting his stack to 8,250.
