The PokerStars Blog talked to some of the pros about their thoughts and memories about the Sunday Million. Here's what Jason Mercier had to say:
“When I think of the Sunday Million, I think back to being a 19-21 year old kid, grinding mid-stakes, looking for that big tournament score. I would get excited every week to play the Sunday Million, hoping that would be the day that I would have my first six-figure score.”
