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


"Yup, I did it again."

Massimiliano Martinez raised to 5,000 from under the gun and Kent Lundmark reraised to 11,500 from the cutoff seat. Action folded to Jason Mercier and he reraised all in for 105,300. Martinez studied for a little bit and then reshoved for 124,300. Lundmark folded and the hands were revealed.

Martinez: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Mercier: {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}

The question now wasn't "will Mercier win this hand?" but rather "how will Mercier win this hand?"

The flop came down {J-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and bam, just like that Mercier spiked a set of deuces to take the lead. The turn brought the {Q-Diamonds} and the river the {A-Hearts} to keep his set good and double him up.

Mercier is famous on Twitter for his hastag "#whenwillitend," but as far as we can tell, it's not ending anytime soon. Credit to Jonathan Aguiar for the title to this post.
