Jason Mercier Wins Bracelet #2

19 June, 2016 | 11:57 от Aleksandra


It’s been a great week for Jason Mercier

Earlier this week Mercier won the $10,000 no-limit 2-7 event at the 2016 WSOP for $273,335. Right after this tournament he registered for the $10,000 Razz event, where he did a runner-up finish for $168,936.

Then the 29-year-old poker pro registered for the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. event and came into the final table as a chip leader. Mercier managed to defeat a 171-player field, taking down $422,874 and his second gold bracelet of the summer.

The Floridian has five career bracelets and more than $17,1 million in winnings. He stands at 11th place on the all-time live tournament earnings list.

“This feels amazing,” Mercier said. “Especially, after all, that’s happened this week. I’m so exhausted. But I also feel so much energy right now.”

Mercier officially won $865,145 this week, thanks to his first, second and first place in three consecutive $10,000 buy-in events, but based on his words he won even more on the side. He told media that he booked lots of bets on himself winning two bracelets.

But probably the prop bet with the biggest prize is for $1,8 million from fellow PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst. If he wins a third bracelet this summer, he would add this incredible amount to his bank account.

With his fifth bracelet, Mercier joins some poker legends with the same number of bracelets, including John Juanda, Allen Cunningham, Scotty Nguyen, Berry Johnson and David Chiu. There are only 14 players with more bracelets than Mercier.
