If you’re a fan of Jason Mercier (and let’s be honest, there are few poker people who aren’t) you likely know he took an extended break from poker at the end of 2013. Mercier announced in early November that he was taking the rest of the year off.

Coming from a man who had lived, breathed, eaten, and slept poker for the better part of the last several years, the news came as a bit of a shock. But, Mercier was, in a word, spent.

Mercier today in the Super High Roller

Today, Mercier re-appeared today for the first time since the UKIPT Isle of Man. He did it by splashing into the $100,000 Super High Roller. Now he’s made it to Day 2 of the event.

A bit earlier today, Mercier took a few minutes to speak to Sarah Grant about his new boat and what he has planned for 2013.
