Jason Mercier – The PokerStars Pro had a great level, adding 282,000 chips to his stack. Most of which came from Tobias Reinkemeier.
Bad level for
Tobias Reinkemeier – The German lost a large amount of chips trying to take on Jason Mercier.
Hand of the level
It was a mainly scrappy level, with Tobias Reinkemeier and Jason Mercier being the most active. The pair have not been afraid to tangle with each other in three-bet pots, but there was no real stand out hand as such. It is, however, an interesting battle betweent he two.
