WSOPE Event 3: Jason Mercier Leads The Way

WSOPE Event 3: Jason Mercier Leads The Way

Thursday, 25 September 2008

Day 1 of the £5,000 Pot Limit Omaha event saw 165 players take their seats in a bid to win their share of the £825,000 prize pool. In the end it was one of the form men who bagged the most chips, as Jason Mercier follows on from his EPT San Remo win and EPT Barcelona final table just this month with an impressive opening day in London.

The field included all of the stars, but it was to prove a barren day for the likes of Patrik Antonius, Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan, all considered big contenders for the bracelet. Those still in contention include Doyle Brunson, American online sensation Shaun Deeb, David Williams, Phil Laak and Neil Channing.
