Kursevich Straightens Out Mercier

Vadim Kursevich

We're not sure of the preflop action, but we do know that Vadzim Kursevich ended up all in for 112,000 with {A-Spades}{7-Clubs} and was in dire straits against the {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} of Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier.

The {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop gave Kursevich a gut-shot straight draw, meaning he was looking for either a five or seven to take the lead. Wouldn't you know it, the {5-Diamonds} spiked on the turn to give him a guaranteed double. Mercier knew he was drawing dead and took to Twitter even before the meaningless {10-Diamonds} was put out on the river.
