Event 12: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

Chop It Up

• Nivo 1: 100-200, 0 ante

With a {q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} flop exposed in the middle of the felt, Jason Mercier check-raised Steven Silverman and made it 1,200. After a few moments Silverman completed the call, and both players were allowed to see a turn. After the {7-Diamonds} fell on fourth street Mercier wasted no time checking and bet out 1,900, and again SIlverman took his time before making the call.

The {k-Clubs} on the river wasn't going to slow Mercier down, who opted to move all in. Silverman took a handful of seconds before announcing "call" and cards were tabled.

Mercier: {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Silverman: {Q-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Both players held three of a kind queens, but neither competitor had a kicker high enough to claim the hand. The dealer then chopped the pot evenly and both players were dealt another hand
