Event #35: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha / Six Handed

Mercier Does It Again

Jason Mercier

On a flop of {6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} Jeff Lisandro checked to Jason Mercier on the button who bet 11,500. Lisandro raised the pot (56,500). Mercier asked how much he had behind and then re-raised pot again to 136,000 or so. Lisandro then pushed the rest of his chips in and Mercier called.

Mercier: {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Lisandro: {4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Lisandro was ahead when the chips went in with a pair of tens, but that hasn't been a problem for Mercier this tournament, and he did it again with a {8-Clubs}{6-Spades} turn and river for the full house.

After losing the hand Lisandro said, "Geniuses of poker here.... why don't you go tweet the world about this one, you're going to put it on twitter aren't you?" Lisandro stormed off and Mercier yelled after him, "Don't be bitter Jeff." Lots of people seemed shocked but Mercier just shrugged and said, "It was pair versus pair... I had alot of outs."

He is now second in chips only to Greg Brooks (who happens to be sitting directly to his right at the moment.)
