Jason Mercier shows the world he is in the shape of his life. After taking down a bracelet and ending runner-up in the Razz Championship, he managed to win another bracelet. This time it was the $10K H.O.R.S.E. Championship, good for $422,874 and one step closer to winning three bracelets (and costing Vanessa Selbst a lot of money).
Jason Mercier started the final day, again, as chipleader. Below are the chipcounts at the start of the last day.

He started the heads-up with a 3:1 chip arrear, and thanks to a huge pot in Limit Hold'em he came to a point where he had a 7:1 chip arrear. Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo was a good level for him, he doubled and took some more chips from Obst.
Finally, in Limit Hold'em, Mercier found a straight with against the of Obst on a board of to secure his second bracelet in these series, and his fifth WSOP-bracelet overall. The payouts of the final table were as follows.
