High-spin states in 200Hg have been investigated by in-beam $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy following the reaction 198Pt(9Be,$\alpha$3n). The $\alpha$-emission channel leading to 200Hg is strongly enhanced which may be explained by an incomplete fusion reaction with pre-equilibrium emission of the $\alpha$ particle. The level scheme is extended to higher spins and new band crossings are observed. The band structures are compared to the lighter Hg isotopes with even mass number.
