EPT11 Barcelona: Jason Mercier on the EPT good times, and the bad times

With 100 EPT events now in the can, or nearly anyway, Sarah Grant has been looking back on the EPTs that some players remember to be their best.

It was indeed a great tournament, the first in Sanremo, with an equally memorable finale. But while it was Mercier's favourite EPT, in a bitter twist it soon turned out to be the worst day of his life, as he explained to Sarah at the first break in play.
