Tom Boivin

HAND #68  –  Franklin Fok completed the small blind to 25,000, Jason Mercier raised from the big blind to 80,000, and Fok folded. Mercier took the pot.

HAND #69  –  Jason Mercier moved all in from the small blind, taking the blinds and ante.

HAND #70  –  Jason Mercier raised from the button to 500,000, taking the blinds and ante.

HAND #71  –  Franklin Fok completed the small blind to 25,000, and Jason Mercier checked his option in the big blind. Both players checked to the turn on a board of QdJc9c2h, Fok checked, Mercier bet 25,000, and Fok called. The river card was the 8d, and both players checked.

Fok turned over KcJs for a pair of jacks, and Mercier showed one card — the Jd — before he mucked. Fok won the pot.

HAND #72  –  Jason Mercier raised from the small blind to about 350,000, taking the blinds and ante.

HAND #73  –  Tom Boivin moved all in from the small blind for 170,000, and Franklin Fok called from the big blind with KcQc.

Boivin turned over 10d8s, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 5d4s3d9c2d, and Fok won the pot with his king to eliminate Boivin in third place.
