Poker Pro Jason Mercier Says Goodbye to PokerStars


Five times WSOP bracelet winner Jason Mercier announced on Jan 7, 2018, that his agreement with PokerStars has expired and he won’t renew it. 31-year-old Jason Mercier cited his wife, fellow poker player Natasha Mercier, and three-month-old son as the reasons.

Jason Mercier reported his retirement just days after Vanessa Selbst announced her retirement. Truly, both of them have ended up their relationship with PokerStars. Jason Mercier is not retiring from poker by any means, on the other hand, Vanessa is going to try her hand at a hedge fund and continue playing poker as a hobby.
