Jason Mercier only played one event during the first-ever PGT Mixed Games, but he definitely made it count by winning the biggest event of the series.

Mercier topped the field in Event #7: a $25,500 10-Game Championship and took home a staggering $367,500 after a heads-up deal with Dan Zack.

“This tournament was so much fun to play”

Jason Mercier said after his victory:

“This tournament was so much fun to play. It was my first time in the PokerGO Studio. I felt good playing. I played cash for two days before coming here, so I felt like my mixed games were oiled up and ready to go. I played well. I was never all in except for one time in no-limit deuce where I had the guy dead. That was the only time I was all in and at risk during the whole tournament, so I feel like I played really well, ran well, and am super happy to get the W and nice payday.”

The two-day event drew 57 entries and generated a prize pool of $1,425,000.

Jason Mercier and Dan Zack dominating the tournament

Entering the second day, Zack was the chip leader, and Mercier was third, but there wasn’t much of a gap between their two stacks.

Mercier and Zack reached heads-up play after Zack busted David “ODB” Baker in third.

After Baker went out, Mercier and Zack agreed to a deal that saw first take $367,500 and second take $345,000.

The two did a series of Pot-limit Omaha flips after the deal to see who won the trophy, and it was Mercier coming out on top.
