Believe it or not, Jason Mercier has just taken down two Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) events in the space of 24
In case you missed it, the 2015 Spring Championship of Online Poker (the richest tournament festival of the year runs May 10-24 with $40,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools spread across 138 events) started on last Sunday.
First, he had the best over a field of 56 entries on Monday to win the title and $39,200 first-place prize in Event #5-H ($2,100 FL Badugi). Then, the following day, he
defeated a field of 43 players in Event #8-H (2,100 NL Draw) to add another $34,400 to his online bankroll. In total, he now has three SCOOP titles won in his career, with
the first being his victory in one of the 8-game SCOOP events (Medium buy-in) a year ago.
Mercier has $1.6 million in tracked online tournament winnings, including WCOOP wins in 2010 and 2012 for almost three-quarters of a million dollars combined. He has seven SCOOP, WCOOP, and FTOPS titles under his belt.
In the live arena, Mercier has $13.8 million in winnings and is #12 on poker's all-time money list. He hit it big back in 2008, introducing himself to the mainstream poker world with a win in the EPT San Remo Main Event for $1.3 million.
His largest live cash was worth $1.6 million and came last year in a Super High Roller Event in Las Vegas. He was the EPT Champion of Champions in 2011.
Congratulations to Jason Mercier on his unbelievable SCOOP run!
