Michael Mizrachi raised to 8,500 from under the gun and Jussi Nevanlinna called from the next seat over. Jason Mercier called from the button and the blinds got out of the way.

The three players saw a flop that was filled with nines on nines on nines. The {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop prompted all three players to check their option. The {10-Spades} came on fourth street and Mizrachi checked again. Nevanlinna fired 12,500 and Mercier called. Mizrachi decided to check-raise, making it 25,000 to go. Both players called and the board completed with the {8-Diamonds}.

Mizrachi checked and Nevanlinna moved 60,000 into the center. Mercier had a pained look on his face as he deliberated his action. Finally, Mercier announced a call and Mizrachi mucked his hand. Nevanlinna showed the {9-Clubs} first, and followed it up with {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. Mercier showed {10-}{10-} and then threw away his hand.

After exiting the tournament area, Mercier tweeted the following:

Jason Mercier will take home €12,245 for his efforts.
