Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier was just knocked out by Bill Perkins. Mercier started out short and ended up all in for his final 113,000 preflop.

Mercier: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Perkins: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

The board ran out {J-Spades}{7-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and Mercier was knocked out. We will definitely see Mercier return for the Main Event on either Sunday or Monday.

Meanwhile, Joni Jouhkimainen has been eliminated from the tournament.
