Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Buchanan Flops His Way to The Quarterfinals

Jason Mercier and Shawn Buchanan

Jason Mercier has 50,000 when he shoved from the button with {A-Hearts} {5-Hearts}. Buchanan looked down at {J-Hearts} {9-Hearts}, and perhaps expecting to flop another straight with it, he made the call to put Mercier at risk.

Wouldn't you know it, the flop came {Q-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} {K-Spades}! #whenwillitend

The turn {4-Clubs} and river {7-Hearts} did nothing to help Mercier, and he could only shrug and congratulate Buchanan on victory. "Bucky" will take 460,000 chips with him into his match with Anatolii Ozhenilok.
