Level 25: 20,000/40,000 (40,000)
James Mercieca opened for 90,000 from middle position and was called by Jon Persent from the cutoff, Dario Minieri from the button, David Lappin from the small blind, and Junyu Liu from the big blind for five players to see the 6♣3♥7♠ flop.
The action was checked over to Merieca, who jammed the rest of his stack of 520,000. Persent, Minieri, and Lappin all folded before Liu snap-called.
James Merieca: K♥K♠
Junyu Lin: 7♥6♠
Merieca was behind Lin’s two pairs but there were tons of cards in the deck that could still help him survive and double his stack. Instead, he hit the showers after the 2♦ turn and Q♦ river completed the board.
Junyu Lin – 4.3 million
James Merieca – 0
