This is a discussion on Jason Mercier POY within the online poker forums, in the Poker News section; Jason Mercier locks up the player of the year. In my opinion is obviously the strongest MTT player out there. There are lots of close
Cant argue with his results, I think Colman is close though.

From what I've always seen, he's never really had a strong showing at the series, despite the previous bracelet. He's dominated other tourneys, just not there. So I think the bet with Vanessa was ballsy and a motivator but obviously a great bet given the enormous odds. 10k well spent.
Also, he seems to have won this from his consistency rather than his 2 wins because 2 others had 3 this year, which is rare.

All the best to him, he deserves it.

Jason Mercier is a beast.
(And from everything I've heard a nice guy too.)
Congrats to him and thanks for posting this. I need to start reading some poker news sites again I didn't even realize they awarded POTY already!
