PokerStars EPT San Remo op punt van beginnen

PokerStars EPT San Remo op punt van beginnen Een Amerikaan, een Nederlander en een Engelse in een casino in Italië. Het is niet het begin van een slechte mop maar het zijn de winnaars van de Italiaanse edities van de European Poker Tour die we de afgelopen drie jaar hebben gekroond. Want ook al lijkt het een eeuwigheid geleden dat Jason Mercier zijn eerste live toernooi speelde, San Remo is pas sinds 2008 onderdeel van de EPT. PokerStars.it | EPT San Remo Data: | woensdag 27 april | t/m dinsdag 3 mei Buy-in: | €5.000 + €300 2008 In 2007 nam Team PokerStars Pro Luca Pagano, samen met zijn vader Claudio, het voortouw en...

-ej-: ' Maar je hebt gelijk, de kans is niet groot dat we elkaar tegen gaan komen. Ik zit immers al vaak op kantoor als het vuilnis wordt opgehaald. Ik reis niet met het openbaar vervoer. Wie weet mag je een keer mijn schoenen poetsen als je op je kratje op de dam zit.'

werd hij toen niet gelijk die avond neergestoken? dat was hij toch?

“Basically, my buddies and I were in this club and we’d had quite a bit to drink. And these guys, these random Italian guys who were in the club, just started a fight with us for no real reason,” Mercier recalls. “Eventually, one of them came over and threw a bottle at me and I ducked, but one of my friends saw it and threw a drink on the guy. And before we knew it, like, 15 dudes just started beating us up.”

The fight was evetually broken up by club security and everyone involved was tossed outside on the sidewalk.

Battered and bruised, and barely coherent at this point, Mercier says he looked up to see that the same spot where he’d been tossed out of the club was surrounded by the mob he’d fought inside.

And this time, there was no security.

“So there I am, on my hands and knees outside this club, already beat up, and then I get punched in the face and kicked several times. In the middle of it, I started to crawl back into the club through the line of people outside and I’m pretty sure that’s when I was stabbed,” Mercier says. “From what I remember, [it was a guy] with a broken bottle. Right in the middle of my back.”

Mercier somehow made it back inside the club and was helped by a patron who saw that he was bleeding from his face.

At the time, Mercier says neither he nor the gentleman that helped him knew he’d been stabbed.

“The guy takes me over to the bouncer. who tells both of us we have to leave. So I go outside and tell this guy ‘Thanks’ and ‘I’m going back to my hotel,’” Mercer recalls. “But as I turn around to hail a cab, he notices the back of my shirt is covered in blood. That’s when we found out I’d been stabbed. So this guy calls an ambulance for me and they took me to the hospital.”

Mercier required 60 stitches in his back and was told by doctors that he was lucky to be alive.

“It was one of those things where, like, the doctor told me that if I had been stabbed an inch lower here, or there, I would’ve bled to death,” says Mercier, who wasn’t charged anything for his hospital visit thanks to Italy’s free health care. “Come to find out the next day, one of the guys with us had also been stabbed and went to the same hospital, but he was okay, too. I was [hospitalized] for two days and I kept thinking about the guy who’d helped me, what would’ve happened to me if he hadn’t been there. I believe it [was a higher power]. I just had a lot to think about while I was there.”

Mercier’s parents, meanwhile, were on their way to church when they got the call. And needless to say, they wanted him to come home.

But that wasn’t in the plans. With $1 million in his pocket and more tournament entries already paid for, thanks to his Supernova status, Mercier decided to press on. “My dad was freaking out, my mom wanted me take the next flight home ... it was nuts,” Mercier says. “But I told them I was okay. That I wanted to go [to the next stop] in Monte Carlo and that I had learned a lot. They thought I was crazy – and maybe I was.”

Wat betreft de reacties: "kutialianen"

'Amerikanen in het buitenland', irritanter volk is er over het algemeen niet hoor. Wat ik dus wil zeggen, smerige Italianen, maar op de een of andere manier denk ik dat uitlokking of hufterig gedrag van de Amerikanen ook een rol heeft gespeeld.

Hoeveel deelnemers worden er dit jaar verwacht?
