Jonas Mackoff Recovers With Flopped Flush, Gets Value From Noah Merritt
With close to 600,000 in the pot and the board reading Noah Merritt bets 250,000 from the blinds before Jonas Mackoff, who is just coming off a loss of the majority of his stack at the hands of Brian Hastings, raises to 565,000.
Mackoff is only leaving himself just over 400,000 in front of him and Merritt, who is playing just under 1,000,000 takes a few minutes to think before eventually calling.
He claims to have a flush but Mackoff shows the for the nut flush, good enough to win the pot after Merritt rechecks his cards a few times before eventually folding.
It's been an up and down level for Mackoff who now looks to enter the next break with a net gain on the level, as he's now playing just over the 2,000,000 chip mark.
Jonas Mackoff - 2,100,000 (105 bb)
Noah Merritt - 450,000 (22 bb)
