Mizrachi Coolers Deppe, Takes Chip Lead

• Nivå 8: 400-800, 100 ante
Michael Mizrachi


We just caught the tail end of one of the biggest pots we've seen all tournament. We only walked up to the table on the river, but another tablemate was kind enough to walk us through the flop and turn action.

Mizrachi was in a battle of the blinds with Robert Deppe on a flop of {5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. Mizrachi check-called a bet of 20,500, and the turn was the {7-Spades}. Mizrachi check-called another big bet of 33,300, and the {j-Hearts} came on the river, which is where we walked in.

Mizrachi slid out a massive bet of 120,000, a bet that has many of the field still left covered. Deppe went deep, deep into the tank, and at one point said "Did you hear what I have?" Mizrachi said no, and Deppe said "I have top set."

Mizrachi didn't seem to react as Deppe continued to shake his head and shuffle his chips. Deppe said "I can't fold this," and eventually, he slid in the call. Mizrachi immedaitely showed {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} for a flopped flush draw that hit a broadway straight on the river, and Deppe did indeed turn over {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} for top set.

The whole table was left dumbfounded, both at the giant pot and the fact that Deppe almost folded. That is little consolation to him though, as he is down to 21,000, while Mizrachi is our new overwhelming chip leader with 553,000.

Chips Count
Michael Mizrachi us 553,000 183,000
Robert Deppe US 21,000 -166,000
