Wattel Doubles Through Mercier


Nick Schulman raised to 15,500 in middle position, Jason Mercier called on the button, and Ali Eslami called out of the small blind. Mike Wattel squeezed, moving all in for 148,000 from the big blind, and only Mercier called.


Wattel fanned {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{2-} for a rough eight, and Mercier tabled {8-}{6-}{5-}{2-}. Any seven, four, or three would give him the best hand, but he was dealt a ten.

Wattel more than doubled to 345,000, while Mercier slipped to 62,000.
