Event 39: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Running Like Mercier

"Baby girl!"

Jason Mercier raised to 42,000 from under the gun, Josh Tieman re-raised to 125,000, and Sammy Farha cold-called on the button. Mercier called all in for a total of 78,000, and the flop came down {10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades}.

Tieman moved all in, and Farha called.

Mercier: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Tieman: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Farha: {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

"Gin," Mercier joked when he turned over his hand.

Mercier's hand turned to gin however, because the turn ({6-Hearts}) and river ({3-Hearts}) both produced hearts.

"Baby girl!" Mercier said when the {3-Hearts} spiked on the river. "Let's go!"

Mercier scooped the pot, tripling to 252,000 chips, while Tieman won the side pot with two aces.
