Matt "SamENole" Smith - (x) (x) / / (x)
Jason Mercier - (x) (x) / / (x)
We caught the action on fifth street, where Mercier led out and Smith raised. Mercier called. When Smith paired on sixth he led out, and Mercier called. On seventh, Smith led out again, but this time Mercier couldn't call.
Mercier slipped to 2,000 chips, while Smith jetted up to 11,000.
