Jason Mercier Proposes To Natasha Barbour at World Series of Poker Final Table

  • Five-time gold bracelet winner Jason Mercier proposed to Natasha Barbour at a 2016 WSOP final table.

On Friday, July 8, 2016, Natasha Barbour entered the final day of play in the 2016 World Series of Poker $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em third in chips amongst the final six competitors. She then worked her way to a third-place finish worth a career-best $348,374. While the money was certainly nice, it was the shocking surprise that came after her elimination that left her shedding tears of joy.

Immediately after her {A-Spades}{5-Clubs} fell to the {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} of eventual winner Yue Du, Barbour's boyfriend, five-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Jason Mercier, hopped over the rail and made his way over to offer a comforting hug. Mercier then whispered in Barbour's ear that he had something to ask her before taking a step back, reaching into his pocket, and dropping to one knee. He then popped the question "Will you marry me?" and a happily stunned Barbour said yes.

While the gold bracelet would've been nice, we're sure that Barbour is thrilled to walk away with a ring. This really is "The Summer of Mercier."
