Konstantin Bücherl Out in 21st Place (£25,918)

Jason Mercier had already taken a pretty serious pot out of the hands of Matt Hawrilenko -- Mercier raised to 23,000, Hawrilenko made it 85,000 and then Mercier made it 384,000 to go. Hawrilenko folded.

So he was on around 600,000 when he raised to 24,000 under the gun on the last hand of the level and Steven Fung called from the button. Over to Konstantin Bücherl in the big blind, who moved all in for 207,000 more. Mercier called, Fung folded, and they were on their backs.

Mercier: {A-Spades} {J-Hearts}
Bücherl: {K-Spades} {K-Hearts}

Board: {6-Spades} {4-Spades} {10-Hearts} {10-Spades} {7-Spades}

Oh dear. As tablemate Tony Cousineau said, "Jason Mercier, ladies and gentlemen. So brutal."

Konstantin Bücherl becomes our 21st-place finisher, and Mercier is up to 860,000.
