Pierre Merlin Eliminated in 2nd Place ($147,052)

Pierre Merlin elimination

Blinds: 1,000,000/2,000,000/250,000

It was an unlucky run heads up for Pierre Merlin.

First, he lost a big pot where he turned two pair only to get counterfeited on the river.

Then, he got in {6-}{6-} against {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} preflop and had to chop when the board two-paired and each player played the board.

Finally, he shoved all in with {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for about five big blinds and was up against {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}. The board ran {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{q-Clubs}, leaving him dead even before another queen arrived on the river.
