After the event, Mercier was delighted to have played and won on his return.
“This tournament was so much fun to play,” Mercier told PokerGO after lifting the trophy. “It was my first time in the PokerGO Studio. I felt good playing. I played cash for two days before coming here, so I felt like my mixed games were oiled up and ready to go. I played well. I was never all in except for one time in no-limit deuce where I had the guy dead. That was the only time I was all in and at risk during the whole tournament.”

Daniel Zack Wins Overall Leaderboard Championship
After eight events, there was only one overall winner, who pocketed an extra $25,000. That man was the 2022 WSOP Player of the Year, Daniel Zack. Having finished second to Mercier in the penultimate event, that finish was enough to guarantee that Zack was a top dog with an event to spare.
His 352 points eventually finished a total of 36 points ahead of second-placed John Monnette, whose late run saw him take the runner-up position.
Also present on the final leaderboard’s top 10 were some very big names, with Nick Guagenti coming in third with 290 points, having won a total of $275,475 during the eight events. Mercier’s win in Event #7 earned him $367,500, good for a top-five finish on the overall leaderboard.
Overall 538 entrants took part in the 2023 Mixed Games Series, a strong return for the series. With 126 unique entrants, the PokerGO series showed that mixed games are hugely popular within the elite ranks of poker professionals. Racking up points during the series, players who did score PGT points will be looking forward to the end-of-season freeroll that has a $1 million prizepool.
