Never Ending


Before the last break, Jason Mercier was crushed down to just 18,000 chips after losing a big all-in confrontation with {A-}{Q-} versus pocket eights. Mercier flopped an ace, but couldn't fend off his opponent who rivered an eight.

Don't worry through, Mercier fans, because he just doubled back to about 35,000. Under the gun, Mercier raised all in for 15,600. Action folded to Barny Boatman in the big blind and he made the call with the {A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Mercier held the {K-Clubs}{4-Clubs}.

There was a king in the window as the flop ran out {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{6-Clubs} to keep Boatman in front. The turn was interesting as the {10-Clubs} added a flush draw for Mercier. Will It end here? No.

The {8-Clubs} landed on the river and gave Mercier a winning flush to double him up.
