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

CLEARLY and I mean CLEARLY one of the greatest....if not the greatest feats in the history of the WSOP......and without even knowing him....as a poker player I can say he's one of the best people ever. Congrats brother! Enough of this "run good" crap.....you are the real deal. Haters are gonna hate but you have to love this guy.

I one played thos h.o.r.s.e game on pokerstars and it was fun, but very intense you have to be very careful of small details and when the game changes, sometimes you still play hand like razz when the game changednton stud and lose a lot of money in this stupid manner.

hahaha that must be annoying. I have never tried a real H.O.R.S.E. tournanement because I would have to practice each individual games first. But yeah I'm sure it's fun. Whenever we do home cash games here we always play dealer's choice with PLO, NLHE, 5 card draw and sometimes 5 cards PLO. Most of the time we end up playing mostly PLO because it's more fun.

See you on the tables!

Thank you for your response TheMachineQC, yes it is a very fun game, but on at pokerstars you can play games like horse and badugi and even 5 card draw you told about, in other ppker rooms thrrr are no such games or only 1 or 2 players at the tables.
 Mober2/16/2017 8:07:16 PM GMT
That game is more for a fun, at least for me.
It keeps you more active than the rest with the constant changes in the game.
But it is not one i would choose to play with real money.
Too many games to be good and lucky at Smile
 pochui2/17/2017 1:56:30 PM GMT
yes just as mober pointed this out- all of those exotic poker forms, especially the combines games makes you more active and interested in the game, everything keeps changing all the time and if the hand drags on you can see the game changing almost every hand... i kinda like those games.
 Gerimantas2/17/2017 5:37:05 PM GMT
Yes mober and pochui h.o.r.s.e is very fun to play and it is really important to know the rules of all games to play good and have good results, I think it is nice idea to play with play money at first and only when you know everything then try to play with real money
