Stephan Girault held the button. Action folded around to Jason Mercier in middle position and he moved his short stack of roughly 465,000 all in before the flop. Sergii Baranov called from the next seat over and the rest of the table folded.
The flop came down and was of no help to Mercier. The paired Baranov on the turn and Mercier needed a ten on the river to stay alive. Unfortunately for Mercier, the rolled off on fifth street and he officially became the first casualty of this final table.
