On one of the final hands of the night, Jason Mercier limped in before Ted Lawson raised it up. Scotty Nguyen was among one of the three callers. Mercier then moved all in putting his tournament life on the line at the very end of the night. Lawson then moved all in over the top. Nguyen and the others folded and the cards were on their backs.
The board came down . The river was meaningless as Lawson was drawing dead. Mercier's stack saw a growth to 38,000 while lawson dipped to 6,000.
