Jason Mercer was all in from the hijack for 81,000 with As3s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the AdQc of Derek Gregory in the cutoff.

The board came QsQhQd2c3h, and the entire table reacted as Gregory flopped queens for the stone cold nuts to win the pot. Mercier was eliminated from the tournament.

Derek Gregory  –  180,000  (30 bb)
Jason Mercier  –  Eliminated

With 57 players remaining from a field of 145, the average chip stack is about 254,000 (42 big blinds). Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 15, around 12:30 am.
