Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

An Odd Line Works for Grinder

Shawn Buchanan raised to 20,000 from the button, and Michael Mizrachi defended to see the flop. It came out {A-Hearts} {K-Spades} {A-Clubs}, and Mizrachi led out into the pot with a small bet of 10,000. Buchanan raised to 31,000, and Mizrachi called. But he led right back out with another 10,000 after the {10-Hearts} turn. Buchanan raised again -- 51,000 this time -- and Mizrachi once again called.

On the river, the {9-Diamonds} drew another lead from Mizrachi, but it was 60,000 this time. Buchanan appeared to be toying with a call, a raise, and a fold at different points in his tank time, but he eventually settled on a fold to let Mizrachi take it down.
