Isabelle Mercier Returns at WPT Montreal
French Canadian Isabelle “No Mercy” Mercier is returning to the poker scene with an appearance for Party Poker at WPT Montreal next week.
Mercier burst onto the poker scene in 2002 with a runner-up finish in the Amsterdam Masters Classics of Poker. She later won the WPT Ladies Night Out invitational to cement her status as an up-and-coming player to watch.
She was later signed by PokerStars and became a fixture of a famous team that included fellow female pros Vanessa Rousso and Vicky Coren.
In 2009 Mercier and PokerStars parted ways, paving the way for Mercier to form a partnership with European online gaming company BetClic.
Mercier’s only played a handful of events since signing with BetClic and WPT Montreal will be the first WPT tournament she’s played since 2008.
Mercier will be doing a Q&A on the Party Poker blog so fans are encouraged to ask questions in the comments. She will answer them in an upcoming post on the site.
The World Poker Tour's inaugural event in Montreal is set to take place Nov. 23-27 at the Playground Poker Club.
