You may have seen our article yesterday in which Liv Boeree was taking the opportunity to see the sights of Australia after playing at the Aussie Millions, well it seems that her fellow PokerStars Team Pro Jason Mercier is determined not to be left behind in the sightseeing stakes.
Mercier had just finished playing in the WPT Johannesburg Alpha8 in which he finished 3rd for a payout of $200k before setting off himself to take in the sights found in South Africa.
Lost AA<KQo all in pre vs other shortstack to get heads up. 3rd place for $200k… #OnToTheNextOne

He began by spending a little more than a day in Cape Town before heading up to the mile high mountain of Table Mountain to savour the views. He then took a bit of a relaxation day before heading out again to see the seals at Kalk Bay.
Jealous much? Us too!
Still, Mercier did mention in a recent blog post that this was the first time he would be going to South Africa and that he is determined to take a more relaxed approach to his tournament schedule this year. He is young, can afford it and is likely to earn even more money over the years so who could hold this against him?
