Championship: Tristan Wade Takes From Aaron Mermelstein

$2,500 Coco Poker Open Championship
Level 16: 2,000/4,000/500 Ante

Aaron Mermelstein (middle position), Tristan Wade (hijack), and the player on the button check through a Js8d5d flop, and the turn brings the 8s. Mermelstein, who appears to have been the preflop aggressor, leads for 13,000. Wade calls, the button folds, and it’s heads up to the river.

It’s the Jd, and Mermelstein bets 22,000. Wade notices the reporter writing the hand, and he goes on the record asĀ wanting to raise. He doesn’t though, instead electing to call.

“Just a flush,” Mermelstein says.

Wade has a flush too, and his AdKd is the better one, giving him the pot.

Tristan Wade – 280,000 (70 bb)
Aaron Mermelstein – 170,000 (43 bb)
