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!
