Mercier won the $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship event earning $273,335 and claims he got more than the first place prize from a bracelet earning side-bet he had with friends.
His goal is to win a side-bet that he has with Vanessa Selbst in which he is required to earn three WSOP bracelets in 2016 to score a massive payout. Having bagged his first bracelet fairly early into the series he is determined to take-down two more events to win the prop-bet.
There is still some time left to qualify for the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event prize packages online at 888poker with qualifiers running daily.
