wsop player of the year 2016WSOP Player of the Year 2016 Jason Mercier tops the leaderboard at the halfway point of the World Series of Poker having won two bracelets from four final table appearances and cashing five times.

He currently tops the 2016 WSOP POY standings with a 262.7 point lead on Ryan Laplante who is just a few points ahead of multi-bracelet winner Ian Johns.

Mercier's hot streak has earned him a total of $907,818 from his five WSOP cashes. This is only half the amount of what he could get from his $1.8 million three bracelet prop-bet with Vanessa Selbst.

His sheer determination to win three WSOP bracelets this year will no doubt keep him on top of the leaderboard for the rest of the series if he continues on this sick run.
