Days: 3

Merkus Doubles Through Clerc

Level 21 : 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Philippe Clerc opened with a raise to 30,000 from late position, then Daniel Merkus set out a raise to 80,000 from one seat over. It folded back to Clerc who sat for a few seconds, then declared he was reraising the pot, and Merkus quickly called with his remaining chips.

Clerc: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Merkus: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

The first four community cards came {4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, filling a wheel for Merkus although Clerc could still make a flush. The {A-Spades} then fell on fifth street, and Merkus survived.
