Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Mizrachi Building Early


Limit Hold'em

Action on the {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop started with Lyle Berman betting and Richard Ashby making the call. Michael "The Grinder' Mizrachi raised and then David Grey reraised. Berman and Ashby folded before Mizrachi called.

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and Mizrachi checked. Grey bet and Mizrachi called.

The river was the {8-Diamonds} and Mizrachi led with a bet. Grey made the call, but mucked his hand after Mizrachi tabled the {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} for a queen-high straight.

Mizrachi, who won this event in 2010, is already up to 217,000 in chips and according to Barry Greenstein, "He's won every pot at the table so far."
