This week join Jen and Amy and special guest Isabelle "No Mercy" Mercier.
Isabelle was born in Quebec, Canada, and studied law at the University of Montreal. She ended up practising law only for six months and decided that a 9 to 5 job was not for her. Instead she sent her resume out to casinos worldwide in order to fulfill her dream of being a globetrotter.
She flew to Paris and got a job at the Aviation Club de France. After being promoted to a managerial role in the poker room, Isabelle set out to become a professional poker player.
She sold all her belongs and lived out of her suitcase in order to bankroll herself to play poker professionally. In 2004, Isabelle won the WPT Ladies night tournament and was dubbed "No Mercy" by Mike Sexton. Isabelle, who has tournament winnings of close to one million, is a renowned poker professional and her autobiography "Professional Bluffer" came out in French in 2008, soon to be translated for the English speaking North American market.
Isabelle now lives in Monaco where she is the ambassador for BetClic Poker.
Tune in and learn more about Isabelle as she shares some great insight about poker and tips for women. Keep updated with Isabelle on Facebook and on her website at IsabelleMercier.com.
