Mercier Busts

Tony Bloom raised to 9,200 from the cutoff seat, and Jason Mercier moved all in for 28,800 on the button. In the big blind, Martin Finger reraised the pot, then Bloom folded.

"Do you have a pair?" asked Mercier, to which Finger shook his head no.

Finger tabled the {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, and Mercier showed the {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}.

"That's about as good as I could've hoped for when you shook your head no," commented Mercier.

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and paired both players. The turn was the {K-Diamonds} to put Mericer in front, but the {7-Spades} landed on the river and put Finger back in front. He won the pot, and Mercier was sent to the rail.
