Jason Mercier Poker Blog

Million-dollar scores and the worldwide poker tournament circuit with Jason Mercier.

Yet again I find myself writing my blog while on a plane. I’m heading home for just a few days before heading to Vegas to watch the November Nine, and then to LA for the NAPT.

I’ve been away from home for 11 days, six of which were spent in a miserable little place called Hammond, Indiana. The other five were spent in the only slightly less miserable Foxwoods Casino.

Wow, it's been a while since I've done this. I haven't done a written blog in quite sometime and my last video was almost a month ago. I would like to apologize to anyone who was anticipating my next post. I’ll try my best to never let it go this long again.

As for where I am right now, I’m using a media person's laptop on dinner break of the $1,500 WSOP circuit event in Hammond, Indiana.

Jason Mercier is ridiculous. He already had pretty much every title available to a poker player but he decided to add a WCOOP win to that long list last night.

He took down the $1k event and bagged $435,862! He stopped by to record a video blog today after he busted out of the £10k High Roller Heads-Up event here in London.

He's had very little sleep so he's a little funnier than usual.

As I sit here watching this obnoxious group of young adults disturb the entire rest of the plane, I figured it's a better time than ever to write a blogpost.

This group of seven kids (I'm calling them kids because of the way they are acting, not because of their age) are screaming at the top of their lungs ... I guess they are excited they are going to Vegas. Fortunately, I have a big pair of headphones and my Ipod, although I feel bad for everyone else around me who doesn't.

Anyways, yes, I am on my way back to Vegas. I am headed there to film the Pokerstars Million Dollar Challenge and then film the second season of the Pokerstars Big Game.

Well it's now (almost) official, we are done with the first quarter of 2010. I wanted to reflect on how the year has gone so far, and also update everyone on my plans for the upcoming months.

I want to take a look at some of the goals I made for 2010 and where I am at with them along with a few bets I made.

In my last blogpost I mentioned how I was going to be heading to Vegas to play the last two events at the Wynn Classic. Unfortunately, those events didn't go so well for me.

I busted the $2k a few hours in, and the $5k main. I lasted a long time but busted well short of the money midway into Day 2.

I decided to chill in Vegas for a couple days and just fly to Indiana from there, instead of heading home first. I went out for St. Patty's Day which was absolutely crazy. A bunch of us went to a buddy's house and started drinking at like 11 am.

We went down to Oshea's on the strip around 2 pm and partied down there for a while. Luckily I had a day to recover from that day of partying before having to get on a flight today.

I learned my lesson when I left Florida to come to Vegas. I somehow thought that it was a good idea to go out and party the night before my 7 am flight to. I was just going to either stay up all night or pass out for a couple hours before leaving for the airport at 5:30 am.

I ended up passing out at like 3 or 3:30 in the morning and barely making my flight. I was sooooo miserable on the flight, hungover and sick to my stomach. It was one of the worst trips ever and I definitely learned my lesson. I will not ever get on a flight with very little sleep and after drinking. That combination is too lethal.

This is the last WPT that I'll be playing until after the World Series. I'm hoping to get a win here! After this, I'll be home for a little bit before NAPT Mohegan Sun and then the trip for EPT San Remo and EPT Monte Carlo. Then SCOOP then WSOP!!!

Uh Oh! It's time to put the computer away, landing in a bit. Pe@ce!

In my last post, I talked about how I was on to round 2 of the NBC Heads-Up Championship after I defeated Daniel Negreanu.

I faced Pieter De Korver in my next match and ended up beating him as well. I had the chiplead for almost the whole match and was winning probably 70-75% of hands, but when the blinds went from 600/1200 to 1k/2 we got it in for his 11 bb stack, him holding A10 vs my A9... 9 on the river, no big deal!

If I had lost this pot, we would have been back to even in chips with 20 bbs each.

In my next match, I faced Phil Laak. This match started out completely opposite to the match with Pieter. Laak crushed me in the beginning stages of the match beating me on almost every hand.
