I showed up to see a large bet in front of Aaron Mermelstein and Lance Oliver moving all-in for what looked to be even stacks.
The board of 2-2-T-9-8 created all the action.
Mermelstein showed Ten_Deuce ... yep, T-2, he flopped a boat.
Oliver, however, showed Pocket_Nines, he turned a bigger boat.
The countdown takes place and Oliver has Mermelstein covered, eliminating him in 61st place, a few shy of the money.
