Mercier Takes Home $273,335 With VictoryPublished on June 14th, 2016 12:35 pm EST
Jason Mercier continued to add to his already impressive resume on Monday evening after taking down the $10,000 Deuce-to-Seven Lowball Championship for $273,335. Mercier, who topped names such as Mike Watson and Alex Luneau at the final table, took down his fourth World Series of Poker bracelet with the win.
While the $273,335 first place prize was surely very nice for the "Team Pokerstars Pro", Mercier reportedly did even better with his side bracelet bets as a result of the win. Mercier didn't divulge exactly how much he won from side bets last night, though he did reveal that he won "well, well over" the first prize prize of $273k.
Mercier also revealed that he has some bets on winning two and even three bracelets, including a wager with Vanessa Selbst that could result in a payout of $1.8 million. It's safe to say that Selbst will be paying close attention to Mercier's results for the rest of the series.
Mercier, who is just 29 years of age, has already compiled one of the most impressive resumes in the poker world.
In addition to his four World Series of Poker bracelets, Mercier also has nearly $16.7 million in live tournament cashes, $2.2 million in online tournament cashes, a European Poker Tour main event title and multiple High and Super High Roller victories.
With his victory on Monday night, Mercier now sits in 11th spot on the all-time tournament money list, roughly $1 million behind Jonathan Duhamel.
