Jason Mercier Proposes to Natasha Barbour at WSOP Final Table

Natasha Barbour was looking to catch up a little with her boyfriend Jason Mercier today as she hit the final table of event #59 $5000 NLHE but unfortunately she just busted out in 3rd place and won't be getting her gold bracelet just yet. However, she has walked away from the table with a diamond ring after Mercier bounded up to her as she bust to to table captain Yue Du, dropped to one knee, and proposed to her.

It's been a good WSOP for Mercier with two gold bracelets, a slew of hefty bracelet bet wins, and a runaway lead for Player of the Year. After Barbour accepted his recent table-side proposal, he can now add a fiance to that list of acheivements.

Barbour fought well at the final table and her third place finish was enough to secure her biggest ever payday of $348,374, eclipsing the $284,911 she got for finishing 2nd in one of last year's $1500 events. It also puts her lifetime live tourney winnings over the $1m mark. She's still got a long way to go to catch up with her future husbands $17.4m - but I guess she'll be good for half of that soon enough anyway!

Our congrats to the happy couple
