Saturday, June 11th, 29-year-old Florida pro Jason Mercier begins his lifetime journey in the World Series of Poker.
Even if he didn’t know then, Mercier would win the Moment 18, $ 10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Championship.
After that winning message, he will be included in Moment 20, Seven Card Razz Seven $ 10,000, another 3-day event, and will be in 2nd place. But he’s not done yet.
On Wednesday, June 15th, he is in another championship event, Moment 24, $ 10,000 HORSE, and on the morning of Saturday, June 18th, he will win his second WSOP gold bracelet of the summer going to LagaPoker.
With the arrival of his father, Rick, Mercier made WSOP history by winning two gold bracelets and finishing 2nd in a grace period of seven days.
What made this feat even more amazing was Mercier conquering the best player in the world in a championship event.
No other player has achieved such success in today’s poker. Other players approaching this feat are WSOP bracelet champion Phil Hellmuth and poker legend Ted Forrest, who each won three bracelet events in a 13-day grace period in 1993.
Today, Jason Mercier’s lifetime competition income is over $ 17 million, putting him in 11th place in the cash breakdown of poker’s lifetime. He has five WSOP gold bracelets, being the 3rd youngest player to reach that number, behind only Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey.
With only a third of the WSOP over, there is a chance Mercier can win his 3rd WSOP bracelet in 2016, so only the 7th player has ever done that.
