Mercier Almost Claims WCOOP Bracelet

Jason Mercier

The action is fast approaching the halfway stage at the 2013 World Championship of Online Poker and we had another six events completed today. Jason Mercier was the highest placed notable player from those events after he managed to make the final table in one of them only to finish in third place.

Take a look at our quick rundown:

Event #22 $215 No Limit Holdem $1,250,000 Gtd

This two day event saw 9.394 players combine to make a prize pool of $1,878,800 that would be shared amongst the top 1,260 survivors. This shattered the guarantee by more than $500k and ensured some of our biggest payouts seen at this year’s WCOOP so far.
