Jason Mercier Talks WSOP Run, Feud With Doug on the Poker Life Podcast

Jason Mercier is a professional tournament player from Florida with over $17 MILLION in live earnings. Jason’s career was launched with a win at EPT Sanremo in 2008 for $1.3 million, a tournament he bought into with FPPs from the PokerStars store.

More recently he won WSOP Player of the Year and got in a minor spat with Upswing’s own Doug Polk over Doug’s “bad reg” tag color on Jason.
