Doyle Brunson Classic poker tournament starts Monday

doyle_brunson_wpt_classicFinishing up the year with a $15,000 Main Event at the Bellagio, the WPT is closing out 2009 with a bang.  The 6-day event will conclude on Saturday when the 6 final table participants will square off for the coveted title.

With the $15k buy-in the event typically draws the best of the best in the poker world, which was never more evident than at last year’s final table that included: Hoyt Corkins, Justin “boosted J” Young, Amnon Filippi, Steve Sung, Evan McNiff, and eventual winner Chino Rheem: A group of six solid poker professionals.

One player to keep an eye on will be Jason Mercier, who has been tearing up the tournament trail for the better part of a year. Mercier captured the $5,000 HORSE title during the preliminary events –netting the poker pro over $100k– so he is already riding high going into the $15k Championship Event.
