Championship: 22nd Place – Jason Mercier ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

A short-stacked Jason Mercier moved all in under the gun and it was folded to chip leader Hans Winzeler in the big blind who took his time before deciding to call. Mercier held AhTh and Winzeler 6c6h.

The flop came JdTc2c to move Mercier into the lead. The turn was the As giving Mercier two pair and only a six on the river would send him home. The dealer put out precisely that with the 6s and Mercier was eliminated in 22nd place for $7,000.
