Jason Mercier had been crippled in an earlier hand, and had just 300 chips to his name when we came to the table on this hand. Mercier was all in, and got calls from Hernan Salazar, Gregory Josephson, and Samuel Clements. On fourth street, Josephson bet and the other two call. On fifth, Salazar led out, and Clements raised. Josephson folded, and Salazar called. Salazar made two pair on the turn, and bet out. Clements called, and Salazar bet blind on seventh. Clements called again, and Salazar showed {5-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{j-Spades} in the hole for a full house. By the time the cards were beign shown, Mercier had already mucked and was heading to the rail. Salazar is up to 80,000 after the hand.
