Isabelle MercierIsabelle Mercier plays professional poker, but that is not the career path she started on. Isabelle was born in 1975 in Canada and obtained a law degree from the University of Montreal. She practiced commercial law for six months before moving to Paris where she attended the Sorbonne and perused a Master's degree in international law while she worked at the Aviation Club de France where poker grabbed and kept hold of her. She never returned to her law career.

The Aviation Club was established in 1907 and is located in the heart of Paris. It is one of the most elegant and sophisticated cardrooms in the world and Isabelle was a perfect fit as the poker room manager. She was such a great manager that she was nominated twice for the "European Poker Awards" in the "Staff Person of the Year" category. Although she excelled at her job, she eventually quit the managerial position so she could play poker fulltime.

It didn't take long for Isabelle to start making her mark as a poker player. She made eleven final tables in one year including two first place finishes. Her first win was at the WPT Ladies Invitational and her second victory was in the No-Limit event at the European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo.

Mercier has appeared on the World Poker Tour numerous times. Her most recognizable appearance was when she won the Ladies Event in 2004. Isabelle played against some well known women (including Cyndy Violette and Wendeen Eolis) and absolutely dominated the table with her aggressive style. It was on this show where Mike Sexton nicknamed her Isabelle "No Mercy" Mercier. Isabelle was also seen on the show as the host for the first three WPT events held at the Aviation Club in Paris. (She also played in the third seasonís Ladies Event.)

Isabelle Mercier Rich Korbin Shirley RosarioI ran into Isabelle several times at the 2005 World Series of Poker and she has a way about her that makes her stand out from everybody else. I remember seeing her walk down the hall and she had a bounce in her step. Her bounce combined with her hairstyle (similar to Princess Leahís) gave her the appearance of looking cute. The amazing thing is she sometimes comes across as one of the most elegant women I have ever seen. Certainly, she has the ability to adapt to her surroundings. I finally ended up meeting her before the Main Event at the PokerStars cocktail party. She was congenial and had a great French accent.

Isabelle Mercier now travels the tournament circuit. At one time she was a sponsored member of Team PokerStars. For more on Isabelle's, check out her personal site.
