Jason Mercier can’t stop winning SCOOP titles at PokerStars. And a player with no tourney experience wins on the World Poker Tour. It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.

Mercier wins again

Jason Mercier is playing some pretty good online poker of late. How good? The PokerStars pro just took down his third Spring Championship of Online Poker title in less than a week.

EPT champ Nicolas “niccc” Chouity and Stefan “mindgamer” Jedlicka are among the other recent SCOOP winners. You can catch up with all of the SCOOP action here, and you can watch highlights from a special SCOOP edition of the Super Tuesday — with commentary from Barry Greenstein — below


The World Poker Tour Amsterdam is in the books, and Farid Yachou won for $240K, playing in his first-ever live poker tournament. Not shabby. Jason “jdpc27″ Wheeler, the best known player at the final table, finished in sixth place. Recap here.
