Few could argue against Jason Mercier being one of the best tournament players in the world but even his supporters would argue that his latest prop bet is a little risky.
Having made three final tables (winning one of them) at this year’s EPT Grand Final, Jason has decided to up the ante for the WSOP with a confident challenge to the MTT world. Staking both his bankroll and his reputation, Jason is willing to give willing punters odds of 3:1 to that he’ll win his third WSOP bracelet this year. Setting the minimum stakes at $3,000 to $1,000, it means that any punters taking Jason’s offer at this level would win $1,000 if he didn’t win a bracelet and owe him $3,000 if he did. However, Jason’s betting bravado didn't stop there. In a bid to motivate himself further and prove beyond that he’s better than almost every tournament player in the world, Jason is willing to lay small odds on himself against any other player in the world. The only exclusions to this bet are three similarly bracelet hungry sharks: Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth. So far the community’s reaction to the bet has been mixed, but with $1,760,118 and an EPT side event title already locked up this season it seems there will be few willing to bet against him.
