Gonzalo Mercade

A classic PLO confrontation put Gonzalo Mercade in a spot to double up but his aces were cracked by the wrap of Nick Halvorson.

Mercade was all-in for 145,000 out of the small blind with A♣A76 against the Q♠J♣10♣9♣ of Halvorson, who was in the cutoff.

The 8♣72 flop gave Halvorson his draw and put Mercade on edge. The 3♠ turn bricked but the 9♠ river brought the straight home to eliminated Mercade.

Nick Halvorson – 600,000
Gonzalo Mercade – 8th place ($2,969)
