Buchanan Doubles Up

Jason Mercier: Not a happy bunny

It appeared that Jason Mercier had his fellow countryman Shawn Buchanan backed into a corner but the latter has just doubled up by running like Mericer usually does.

Buchanan raised to 12,000, Mercier three-bet to 40,000 and then instantly called when Buchanan moved all in on him for a total of 180,000.


The dealer put out the {9-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop onto the table, gifting Buchanan a straight and when the {10-Spades} landed on the turn Mercier held his cards over the muck. The meaningless {5-Diamonds} was our river card and Buchanan doubled up and took a commanding lead in the match and Mercier threw his cards into the muck.
