2016 WSOP: Jason Mercier Wins $10k H.O.R.S.E. Championship!

Tags: 2016 WSOP, horse championship, James Obst , Jason Mercier.
Posted on Monday, June 20, 2016 by "T".

Less than a week after winning his fourth career gold bracelet in the $10k buy-in Deuce-to-Seven Lowball (No-Limit) tournament, Jason Mercier claimed another title (and bracelet) over the weekend for being the last man standing in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship!

The 29-year-old South Florida poker star bested a field of 171 entries (including a tough final table with Nick Schulman, Bryn Kenney and James Obst) to become the champion! Aside from the $422,874 first-place prize, some claim that he might have collected another $1.8 million thanks to side bets.

Mercier was close to elimination a number of times during the final day of play. The fact is that he was down by about a 7 to 1 margin, and only one card away from elimination during the heads-up versus James Obst. However, things turned out very well for him at the end of it all given that he won the event and his second bracelet of the 2016 WSOP.

Mercier now has 50 cashes, 18 final tables, 5 gold bracelet and $4.4 million in prize money from playing at the World Series of Poker. The 2016 WSOP is about halfway through, so don't be surprised if he wins another one in the coming weeks!

"I got to get to the final table first, but there are so many big tournaments left that have big field sizes," Mercier said.  "They will have small fields that I think I will have an edge in.  I haven't even played a PLO event: I will have a great chance in those.  There will be a lot of buzz and hopefully my friends will be around and I'll get to take it down.

Final table results: 

Place - Player - Prize
1 Jason Mercier $422,874
2 James Obst $261,354
3 Nick Schulman $183,779
4 Adam Friedman $131,519
5 Mikhail Semin $95,817
6 Jesse Martin $71,089
7 Yuval Bronshtein $53,729
8 Bryn Kenney $41,383

I thought it wouldn't be long before Jason Mercier won his fifth bracelet but i didn't think it would be this quick!! This guy is a phenomenal player and it would be no surprise if he wins another one very soon

Wow.
What a lucky donk!
Congratulations i guess to Jason Mercier for donking another player and stealing his bracelet. Unbelievable.
This guy should be thrown in jail for robbery.
Unless headsup on final table, if you find yourself in a hand with this guy just muck your hand. AA i dont care muck it and save yourself.

Hats off to Jason!
He now has five WSOP gold bracelets overall, and with more than $17 million in earnings ($4.4 million in WSOP events) he sits at number 11 on the all-time live tournament earnings list.

Wow what a start to his WSOP year and so early that he should cash a few more times.

I've read a lot on Mercier and a lot of people just don't give him the credit he deserves. I hear the term "UCKBOX" often and if luck is why he is winnign then I'd ratehr be lucky then good. But I'm guessing he's amazing which creates his luck.

Jason Mercer yeah really very happy dude .. just amazing how he carries in the game ... of course the skill of course also is very important, but with no luck, the devil's luck this can not be achieved ... in any case, it's just a wonderful victory and I'm very happy for him and let him continue luck ... I like it
