Poker Champ Jason Mercier Proposes to Girlfriend on WSOP Live Stream
Jason Mercier has won two bracelets and almost $1 million at the World Series of Poker this summer and today he asked Natasha Barbour to marry him live on the WSOP's online broadcast.
Barbour was on the sidelines at every one of Mercier's deep runs this summer, along with their dog Marshmallow.
Today it was Barbour at the final table and when she busted in third place from the $5,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event, pocketing $348,374, Mercier got down on one knee and popped the question.
Check out a clip of Mercier doing the deed, taken from the WSOP's live stream:
Engagement Latest in Series of Mercier Victories
Mercier's summer had already been one of the most successful in WSOP history, scoring first, second and first-place finished in three consecutive $10,000 buy-in events.
In addition to the $958,518 in prize money, Mercier had also laid big side bets on himself to win one, two and three WSOP bracelets.
The biggest of the bets is a $10,000 wager he made at 10 to 1 on himself winning three bracelets this summer.
That bet was originally against Vanessa Selbst but rumor has it Selbst sold off a big chunk of the action around the time Mercier won his second bracelet.
With so much money on the online, the question is: Will Mercier take a night off poker to enjoy his new engagement?
