Mercier Loses Back to Back "Pots"
Jason Mercier raises to 160,000 on the button and action folds to Dan Smith in the big blind. Smith thinks about it briefly before announcing "pot", raising to 520,000. Mercier mucks his hand and Smith takes down the pot.
Mercier soots a look over towards his rail. "What did he have? I want to know in thirty minutes. I made it 160,000, he made it 520,000. Unless I'm not in, then I really don't care." Smith and Mercier share a laugh.
On the very next hand Mercier raises to 160,000 from under the gun and Alexander Petersen calls out of the big blind. The two see a flop of and Petersen checks to Mercier, who continues for 185,000. Petersen slides forward a tower of yellow 100,000 chips, raising pot, and Mercier quickly folds.
Jason Mercier - 2,210,000
