The Grinder Storms Ahead

• Nivå 1: 50-100, 0 ante
Michael Mizrachi (earlier in the series)

We arrived at table with the flop spread out {10-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. Four players, including Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi checked their options to the player on the button, who bet out 550. The big blind called, before Mizrachi raised it up to 3,500. The players in the cut-off, as well as the one on the button, were the only two to call, as the {9-Spades} fell on the turn.

Mizrachi then instantly fired out a bet of 16,000, which saw the cut-off immediately release his hand, before the option fell on the button. He tanked for several minutes, contemplating what to do.

“Run it twice?” joked Mizrachi, as he casually sat there, waiting on his opponent.

“I would’ve done that,” replied the player in the cut-off, who had folded to the bet on the turn.

A few more minutes passed, before the player on the button moved all in for 24,000, and was snap called, as both players tabled their cards.

Mizrachi: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Opponent: {k-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Mizrachi had flopped the nut straight, but had to dodge a club on the river to win the massive pot. The {2-Spades} came on the river, sealing the deal for Mizrachi, who moves up to 85,000 in chips, and sending a player to the rail.

“I knew that he had that. A king-high flush draw. That’s why I bet so big,” said Mizrachi, stacking up his new found wealth.
