PokerStars Team Pro Jason Mercier always likes to keep his fans updated on how his poker has been going and he recently posted his latest blog over at PokerStarsBlog detailing just how his time at the World Series of Poker went this year.
He was quick to point out that although he cashed in three of his first six events and came very close to winning a bracelet, the World Series of Poker certainly did not turn out how he had wanted it to.
“I had a really good start to the World Series this year. I finished ninth in the $10,000 Deuce-to-Seven triple draw event, cashed the $1,500 NLHE six-max, and came very close to winning my third WSOP bracelet in the $10,000 no-limit Deuce-to-Seven single draw.”
“I made those three cashes in the first six events I played and went on to brick the rest of the WSOP events all summer.”
Whilst the World Series of Poker did not bring him much glory, his summer was saved by making the biggest tournament score in his life when he chopped the prize pool in the $100k Super High Roller at the Bellagio for a score of $1,622,000.
This turned his summer into a profitable one despite not cashing in the $1 million buy-in ‘Big One For One Drop’ event.
“That huge score made it a little easier to buy in to the One Drop, but I didn’t make it past the first day. I drew a really tough table and busted in the last level of Day 1. After the One Drop, I played a few more tournaments including the main event, which I busted on day 1.”
Mercier will now be anticipating the start of Season 11 on the European Poker Tour which starts with EPT Barcelona this August. Check out his full blog post over at PokerStarsBlog, where you can get an insight into the life of one of the most popular poker players around today.
