Like a lot of modern professionals, Jason got carried away. At first he tried himself in online, however, the first steps in a living game demonstrated that he was waiting for serious success here. In 2008 he won Main Event Ept Sanremo, for which he received 869,000 euros. In doing so.

After that, the American undertook to win titles one by one. Currently in his asset 5 wsop bracelets, 2 wPT trophies, 6 wins on EPT and even a bunch of smaller successes. He won nearly $ 20 million in prize (28th place in history) for his career. In 2009, the authoritative Bluff magazine named it player of the year, and in 2016 he got the title of WSOP Player of the Year.
By the way, 2016 has become for Jason really landmark. In addition to good results in king, he succeeded in his personal life. Merissier married Natasha Barbar – also a professional porester. Merissieru’s proposal made during the WSOP 2016 when Natasha flew out of the final table at one of the series tournaments.
The couple now raised two children and not so often appears at poker tables. However, Jason Mersye’s skill has not gone anywhere. Even in spite of a serious change in image. He proved this at the end of last year when he won over $ 700,000 at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open tournament.

And most recently, Mersye added to his trophies another victory on the WPT, which through the coronavirus pandemic took place online. For victory in Omaha’s tournament, an American earned $ 280,000.
Therefore, despite the fact that poker no longer takes the first place in the life of Jason Mersye, we will probably hear about his successes in elite tournaments again more than once again.
