WSOP 2015: Jason Mercier Earns Bracelet Number 3

WSOP 2015: Jason Mercier Earns Bracelet Number 3PokerStars Team Pro Jason Mercier is one of the most successful players in tournament poker and coming into this year’s WSOP was on a high having picked-up a hat-trick of SCOOP titles over the period of just one week. However, a couple of weeks into the prestigious Las Vegas tournament series Mercier was complaining of not having made any significant impact on the competition and tweeted:
“Have yet to make a day 2 this summer. It’s beyond spooky how amazing I ran during Scoop, and how awful I’m running so far in Vegas #Variance”
However, the 28 year-old pro has now placed his 2015 WSOP campaign squarely back on track after taking down Event #32: $5k No Limit Hold’em Six Handed to earn a third career gold bracelet, whilst boosting his career earnings by an impressive $633,357. Following his winning performance, the Florida resident who now boasts $14,514,720 in live career earnings, commented:
“I was really down on myself. I was getting beat up in cash, busting every tournament. This is the first tournament I made Day 2 of. It feels really good just to go deep, make the final table, and to win is just the cherry on top.”
WSOP Event #32 attracted 550 entries to create a prize pool worth $2,585,000, and amongst the notable pros seeing a return on their $5,000 buy-ins was Jason Somerville in 60th ($8,892), Faraz Jaka in 53rd ($9,667), Jesse Sylvia in 37th ($11,916), and Jennifer Tilly in 14th ($25,022).
After the final table had been reached, Jason Mercier subsequently dispatched James Obst (6th), Igor Dubinsky (5th), and Dario Sammartino (4th) to the rail, and after Simon Deadman did likewise to Mike Gorodinsky (3rd) the final battle got underway for the bracelet. A while later the deciding hand was then played with Mercier (6-6) and Deadman (K-Q) all-in preflop, and with the dealer laying out a J-4-10-7-4 board Deadman had to then settle for a runner-up finish worth $391,446, while Mercier took gold.
Final Table Results:
1 Jason Mercier $633,357
2 Simon Deadman $391,446
3 Mike Gorodinsky $246,867
4 Dario Sammartino $163,604
5 Igor Dubinsky $111,672
6 James Obst $78,428
