Jason Mercier: Near the record of Erick Lindgren

The year 2012 is coming to end. This is also an opportunity to make an assessment. Poker like the other sectors is still a discipline in which stakes are enormous. We're talking about professional players of course. On the international level, the news was dominated by poker celebrities such as Phil Ivey, Daniel Neagreanu, Erick Lindgren and Jason Mercier. These are just a few among many other representatives who earned a lot of money in 2012. They talk about them on the various tournaments around the world. And the case of Jason Mercier is also interesting. Indeed, he is among those who raised a total of $ 8 million over five years.

However, things were not so good in 2012 as the Floridian lost the bet to equal the record of Erick Lindgren: winning for 5 consecutive years a gain over a million. This member of Team PokerStars Pro made his worst season of his career. This poor performance is illustrated by a "small gain" of $ 523,587, well below his other gains of other years. The 26 years American marked his career as being the winner of the EPT San Remo 2008 for $ 1,372,893, he monopolized also the new High Roller of the European Poker Championship 2008 in London for $ 944,857 gain. In 2009, the man added to his prizelist two WSOP bracelets in Pot Limit Omaha. In 2011, he added the $ 100,000 High Roller at the Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic in his record while pocketing $ 709,767.
