Michael Bartholomew Survives Jason Mercier

Chad_Holloway • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

A short-stacked Michael Bartholomew moved all in for just 11,000 from middle position and action folded all the way around to Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier, who opted to call from the big blind.

Mercier: {q-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Bartholomew: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Bartholomew was way out in front, and the {7-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop seemed safe enough. The {3-Diamonds} turn kept Mercier drawing live, but he missed as the {A-Diamonds} turn gave Bartholomew the double.
