All smiles for this cat

With about 2,800 in the middle, the flop was {J-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts} between Jason Mercier, Joao Barbosa and one other player. The first player bet 1,450 before Barbosa raised to 4,000. Mercier reraised to 8,300 and the first player folded. Barbosa then tanked for a bit. Eventually, he moved all in for approximately 23,000. Mercier quickly checked his hole cards and then called.

Mercier held the {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for middle set, which was bad news for Barbosa holding the {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for bottom set.

The turn brought the {3-Hearts} and the river the {10-Clubs}. Barbosa couldn't hit his one outer and was eliminated from the tournament.
