Championship: In The Money

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 2K/4k/500 ante

After doubling up through Jason Mercier with 8s8h against Mercier’s Ac4s, it was folded to Erik Christensen in the small blind who moved all in first to act on Mercier’s big blind. Mercier took a peek at his cards and quickly announced a call.

After making sure there were no all ins at the remaining tables, the two players revealed their hands with Christensen holding AcKd and in need of some help as Mercier held KhKc. He would not get any of that help as the board would run out 9s8h2h5h4c to give Mercier the knock out and move the tournament officially into the money.
