Jason Mercier is a professional poker player from Fort Lauderdale, FL. Mercier discovered poker at college, not realizing then it would see his career focus change from becoming a math teacher to travelling the world as a fulltime poker player.
In a few short years, Mercier’s tournament travels have net him nearly $5 million in earnings. In 2008, Jason claimed the title at the EPT San Remo event and later that fall Mercier finished first at the EPT London High Roller Event (as known as the 2008 £1 Million Showdown). Mercier has a WSOP bracelet from the 2009 $1500 PLO event and finished 4th in the 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event at a final table that included Daniel Negreanu, James Akenhead, Antoine Saout and Barry Schulman. In addition to 14 cashes at the WSOP, Mercier claimed first at the 2010 NAPT Mohegan Sun $25,000 No Limit Hold’Em Bounty Shootout and a first place finish at the 2009 Doyle Brunson Five Diamond Poker Classic $5000 H.O.R.S.E. event.
