Mercier Takes From McDonald

• Nível 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Jason Mercier

Mike McDonald opened the action with a raise to 3,000 from the hijack. Jason Mercier called from the cutoff and it folded around to Guy Laliberté who tagged along from the small blind.

The three players saw a flop of {K-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and there were two checks over to Mercier. He fired out a bet of 5,800 and Laliberté folded. McDonald called and the two saw the board pair on the turn with the {4-Diamonds}. McDonald checked for a second time and Mercier bet 17,200.

McDonald stayed the course and the {a-Clubs} finished off the board. Both players checked and McDonald showed {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds} which was ultimately bested by Mercier's {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}.
