Three-Bet Pot for Jason Mercier

Yardley • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

There was an open from early position for 4,200 before it got to Jason Mercier, who raised to 18,300. The blinds folded, and the original raiser called.

The flop was {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, and both players checked. The turn card was the {3-Clubs}, and when it was checked to Mercier for a second time, he bet 9,200. That got a call, and the {a-Diamonds} river was checked to Mercier again. A bet of 28,500 from the five-time WSOP bracelet winner took the pot.

David Meyer Flops It

ajlamers • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The action was opened by a player in middle position, and David Meyer was on the button. He three-bet to 13,500, which was called by his opponent.

The flop came {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, and Meyer bet 13,000 once it was checked to him. His opponent called, and the two players saw the {4-Hearts} hit the turn. That caused both players to check to the {Q-Spades} river. Again, his opponent checked, and Meyer bet 21,000. When his opponent called, Meyer tabled {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

"I thought you were full of shit," his opponent said, but, indeed, Meyer flopped the nuts and maintained the best hand throughout.

Hold My Coffee

ajlamers • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Upeshka De Silva has been on a roller coaster ride today, but lately, he's been on the upswing. During a recent hand, De Silva had another player hold his coffee for him; he had some chips to win.

The board read {Q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Hearts}{J-Spades}, and the action was checked to De Silva. He bet 28,600 into a pot of around 60,000. His opponent thought for a couple moments before calling, and De Silva showed {8-Spades}{6-Spades}. De Silva scooped the pot, and the other player handed his coffee back to him.

Yardley • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Three players were in the hand and saw a flop of {7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

Niall Farrell was in the big blind, and he checked. The original raiser bet, and the player on the button called. Farrell responded by check-raising all in for 46,000. The original raiser called, and the other player folded.

Farrell showed {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a flush draw and a gutshot, and he was up against {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}.

“A fair fight,” said Farrell, sipping on his drink.

The turn card was the {3-Hearts}, bringing the flush, and the river was the {5-Clubs}.
