Michael Mizrachi

We caught Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi playing a few pots just before the night ended and he managed to win all three, despite switching tables between the first and second hand.

In the first hand, Mizrachi opened with a raise to 2,500. He drew two calls, one from the small blind. The flop came down {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and all three players checked to see the {7-Diamonds} on the turn. Action checked to Mizrachi who fired a bet of 5,000. Only the small blind called. The river was the {7-Spades} and the player in the small blind checked again. Mizrachi bet out 15,000 and the player in the small blind eventually folded, showing a {10-} for a busted straight draw.

"What did you want?" Mizrachi asked after the hand. "You didn't want a six." Mizrachi showed a {J-} and then he was promptly moved to another table in the back of the silver section with Jean-Robert Bellande and Humberto Brenes.

For his first hand at his new table, Mizrachi opened to 2,500 again. Everyone folded and Mizrachi took down the pot. He showed the {A-Diamonds} and blew on it before mucking his hand and passing it to the dealer.

On the third hand, Mizrachi opened for a third time. The player to his direct left reraised to 12,000 and action folded back to Mizrachi who called. "That's strong," Mizrachi said upon seeing the reraise. The flop came down {10-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{6-Spades} and both players checked to see the {2-Hearts} on the turn. Mizrachi bet 20,000 on the turn which drew an immediate fold from his opponent who showed {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}.

With that, Mizrachi is pushing close to 400,000 in chips which would be a strong finish for the day, but not quite his highest for Day 2.
