Smith and Merson Go Head-to-Head
Anderson folds from the get go in this hand. Drubetskoy ♦ 10 ♦ 7 calls and then Baker, Schneider and Glantz all fold too. Smith ♣ 4 ♠ 4 and Somerville ♠ Q ♣ J call. Next, Merson ♦ A ♦ J raises to $300 and Drubetskoy folds. Smith and Somerville both call again.
Merson Takes a Blow
As a conversation deepens about how former hockey player Dan O'Brian has never been punched in the face, the Flop comes out ♦ 6 ♦ 4 ♣ 6. The chat continues as Anderson reveals her short lived boxing career when she fought another woman in a bar for $100 and Somerville checks with his Flush draw. Merson bets $650, Smith raises to $2,075 and Somerville folds. Feeling confident, Merson ships it all in with $15,700. Gavin quickly makes the call with $4,500. The Turn is ♠ K and then the River comes out ♠ 3. Merson draws dead and Smith wins a $10,000 pot with a Full House.
