When Jason Mercier and James Obst reached the heads-up play, things seemed to go the wrong way for Mercier. He started the heads-up with a 3:1 chip arrear, and thanks to a huge pot in Limit Hold'em he came to a point where he had a 7:1 chip arrear. Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo was a good level for him, he doubled and took some more chips from Obst.

 

Finally, in Limit Hold'em, Mercier found a straight with against the of Obst on a board of to secure his second bracelet in these series, and his fifth WSOP-bracelet overall. The payouts of the final table were as follows.
