Biography

Mercier was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He picked up the game of poker in his late teens, but only started taking it seriously in college. Before he learned about poker Mercier was certain he would become a math teacher and was even studying to become one. He got his start playing poker in high school with friends and then after the poker boom hit, took to the online felt. Playing under his then-alias “treysfull21”, Mercier concentrated on cash games while dabbling in tournaments.

He stormed onto the poker scene in 2008 after he won the European Poker Tour (EPT) Sanremo Main Event, after satelliting in on PokerStars.

In 2010, he won a WCOOP bracelet and was named by Daniel Negreanu as one of the top five young poker players in the game.

Jason Mercier at the World Series of Poker (WSOP)

Mercier first played in the World Series of Poker the same year of his EPT triumph, cashing in three WSOP events. The following year he grabbed his first bracelet in a Pot-Limit Omaha event.

His second bracelet also came in a Pot-Limit Omaha event two years later.

After picking up a third WSOP bracelet in 2015, this time in a No-Limit Hold'em event, Mercier picked up two in a single year in 2016. He cashed 11 times in 2016 and made four final tables, clinching the WSOP Player of the Year title.

It was also in 2016 that he proposed to his now-wife Natasha after she was eliminated at the final table of the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em.

Mercier would return to cash 11 times in 2017 and four times in 2018, and has since taken a step back from poker to focus on family life.
