$1.5k PLO - Mercier Wins Bracelet!
PokerListings blogger Jason Mercier has been hammering away at his opponent Stephen Burkholder and it seemed like a matter of time before the pair of them went to war.
That just happened!
Mercier Takes the Title!
Jason has a huge bank of successes built up over the last 18 months as he has picked up title after title on the EPT tour as well as impressing in numerous other events.
Surprisingly, the accomplished player is not as well known in America as perhaps his endeavours suggest he should be, but that will all change now he has added a bracelet to his many accomplishments.
The key hand saw both players see a J♥ J♠ 6♦ flop and get their stacks all-in!
Both players had trips as you would expect, but Burkholder held the edge with A♣ A♥ J♣ 7♦ versus Mercier's Q♣ J♦ 8♦ 2♠.
Set to double-up, his hopes were crushed as the Q♦ hit the turn and when the river blanked, Mercier was the champ and Burkholder picks up $146,748 for his second place finish,
Mercier though wins the bracelet, $237,415 in cash and the plaudits for an outstanding achievement that will mark his place in history.
We will be back shortly with winner shots and some words from Jason but for now congratulations!
