APPT Sydney T.O.C: Isabelle evicted from Scotty’s house

By Sean Callander

Is there a poker player who looks more comfortable at a TV table than Scotty Nguyen? Away from the constant scrutiny that comes with being a famous face in a public cardroom, the PokerStars player is holding court in the TV studio and is clearly enjoying the experience of an afternoon’s play with some new friends – all for a good cause.

It could be a group of guys just enjoying an everyday game of poker, except for the small matter of the six WSOP bracelets and three world championships amassed by the seven players remaining.

That’s right, we’re down to seven after Isabelle ‘No Mercy’ Mercier was eliminated just before the first break.

On a flop of Ad 3d 9d, Greg Raymer led out for 10,000 and ‘No Mercy’ reraised all-in. Raymer called and showed 4d 7d for a made flush, while Mercier needed help. It didn’t arrive and Mercier, a great supporter of the APPT having journeyed across the world from her base in Montreal, Canada to Korea and Macau, is out in eighth position.
