There was around 8,000 in the pot in what appeared to be a single-raised pot where Jason Mercier opened from the hijack and got a call from the big blind. The flop was out reading and Mercier made a continuation-bet of 4,100. The player in the big blind check-raised to 9,500 and action was back on Mercier, who called.
The turn came and after check-raising, the big blind slowed down and checked again. Mercier announced a bet of 11,000 and his opponent called.
The river fell and the big blind checked. Mercier thought for a few moments, realigning the chips he was shuffling in order to assess his stack size. Eventually, he knocked a closed fist down onto the table to check behind and take the hand to showdown.
"Ace-high," his opponent said after Mercier checked.
"It's no good," Mercier responded, tabling for a rivered straight, good to take down the pot and put him to the 100,000-chip mark.
