Jason Mercier Serves Mike Watson Yet Another Defeat To Claim 6th Bracelet

It was deja vu time for Jason Mercier as he beat Mike Watson once again in World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2023 $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Championship. It was the year 2016 when both players had locked horns for the same title; back then also Mercier went all guns blazing and shipped the event just like he did this time around. What is it about Mercier kicking Watson’s ass like there is no tomorrow to ship a bracelet at WSOP? 

Mercier while speaking about his sixth WSOP bracelet win said, “I’ve been three-handed with him (Watson) four separate times in major events and I’ve won all four. So he’s gotten second twice and third twice. 

But in particular, we played heads up for the no-limit deuce bracelet in the $10K in 2016. So it was definitely a bit of déja vu. You know going into heads up, I was a little worried that he was finally going to get me. But luckily I ran hot and was able to beat him again”

Coming to the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Championship, the event had a total of 548 entries which generated a prize pool of $731,580. When it comes to competition, nine-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel was on the final table looking to nail his 10th WSOP bracelet. But sadly for Seidel his journey ended in 5th spot for $31,114.

How can we not talk about Watson still hanging in the air without a bracelet. Yes folks, this player came close to winning a bracelet against Mercier in 2016 and 2023 but lost both the times. Watson ranks 38th on the All Time Money List with total earnings of $20,720,020. 

Watson, who also goes by the moniker of ‘SirWatts’ will look to ship a bracelet in the upcoming WSOP events, but only time will tell if he actually wins one. Also, we are happy to see that Mercier came out of his self-imposed exile from poker, and took down a bracelet event like a boss.
