Hand #61: Ben Tollerene had the button and raised all in for 580,000, according to the stream graphics, with the {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Everyone folded, and Tollerene won the pot.

The {Q-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop put Quoss in the lead, but the turn was an interesting card with the {K-Hearts} giving Mercier a flush draw. However, the {2-Diamonds} on the river wasn't the red card he was looking for.

With that, Mercier took his leave in third place, taking home AU$602,700.
