The When Will it End Chronicles: Jason Mercier Wins an iPhone 5

[user101598] • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Jason Mercier - Does bet money, but also iPhone 5s evidently.

After losing a large, three-bet pot to Fredrik Andersson during the last level, Jason Mercier received a bit of a needle from Kitty Kuo.

"He bluffed you," Kuo told the Team PokerStars Pro.

Mercier disagreed, prompting Kuo to ask him whether or not he wanted to make a bet.

"I'll bet anything up to $1,000," Mercier told her.

"No," she responded. "I don't bet money."

There was a beat.

"What?" Mercier said, confused.

"I don't bet money," Kuo repeated.

Mercier was a bit stunned by this, and thinking that the amount was perhaps too high, he offered a smaller bet size.

"Let's just do $100."

"I don't bet money," she said for a third time.

Chris Moorman, Ruben Visser, and Matthias Tikerpe , who were also at the table, started to laugh.

"Let's bet an iPhone 5," Kuo offered.

"But that costs money," Mercier said, chuckling very loudly. "I still have the 4s. I don't know if I'm ready for the 5."

"You two should just exchange gifts," Visser interjected.

"You're betting money right now," Mercier told Kuo. "You bought in with money."

"I don't bet money," Kuo repeated once again.

Despite his curiosity — and unwillingness to go shopping for an iPhone 5 if he lost — Mercier booked the mobile bet. The two asked Andersson whether or not he was bluffing, and according to the Swede, he was not.

We hope Mr. Mercier is finally ready for the 5.
