Jussi Ryynanen raised to 8,000 and both blinds defended. Michael Mizrachi was in the small blind and he checked the {J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop. Jason Mercier, who was in the big blind, checked as well.

Ryynanen put out a 17,000-chip continuation bet and Mizrachi decided to call. Mercier had 64,300 chips left and he moved all in. Ryynanen announced a pot-size raise putting massive pressure on Mizrachi.

After about half a minute Mizrachi got up from his chair and leaned against the back wall. He could not believe what had just happened, and after about two minutes he open-folded his {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}.

Jason Mercier: {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Jussi Ryynanen: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The turn brought out the {3-Hearts}, and the river the {2-Clubs} giving Mercier the double up with just two pair. Mizrachi would've won the hand, but he did not feel like risking his big stack.
