Jason Mercier - 14th Place

Jason Mercier had the button. He raised to an unknown amount and Jonathan Aguiar three-bet all in. Mercier snap called and tabled {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Aguiar rolled his eyes and showed {Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}.

It seemed to get even better for Mercier when he flopped a set on the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop. However, a shocked look quickly washed over Mercier's face as the {J-Diamonds} rolled off on the turn, giving Aguiar the nut straight. Mercier would need to make a full house or quads on the river, but the {2-Hearts} bricked out for him and he was eliminated from the tournament.

"Let's play ball!" Mercier said to Vanessa Selbst, who recently showed up to the room with a basketball in hand.

Aguiar, on the other hand, will be returning to the round of 8 with a stack of 229,000.
