Jason Mercier moves all in for 58,500 from late position, and T.K. Miles calls on the button. The action is held while the other tables finish up, and Mercier and Miles exchange information about their hands. Mercier doesn’t like the news he receives, and he begins packing up to leave.

“Hey, that’s bad luck,” Scott Efron admonishes from across the table.

Mercier just laughs. “It’s bad luck to have the hand I have against the hand he has,” he says. When the rest of the action is complete at the surrounding tables, the cards are turned over.

Mercier: AhQc
Miles: AsAc

The board runs out 8d4s4c5s7h, and Miles wins the pot with aces up. Mercier is eliminated on the bubble, and the 45 remaining players are all in the money.

T.K. Miles – 365,000 (61 bb)
