Jason Mercier took first place in the SHPRO Highrollers Tournament in Hollywood. This tournament has 41 entries and prize for the first place was $715,860. Jason’s wife, Natasha, is now 7 months pregnant. Ironically, two years ago she was also seven months pregnant when Jason won the $25K High Roller in the same series before he decided to focus on the family and raising the child.
“I won a lot of hands that I shouldn’t have won, just because of the size of the stack. I had more than half the chips when there were 7 people left in the game, so I played with a huge number of hands and used my advantage. But I also got good hands, so I could collide with the alyns when I was on the big blind and those hands won.
