Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

The Mizrachi Train Keeps Running



Michael Mizrachi has not lost a pot since the start of the day. Luke Schwartz and Stephen Chidwick were his next two victims as he took down a big Stud pot off them. Mizrachi has already added over two million chips to his stack, and we've only been playing for about 30 minutes.

Stephen Chidwick{x-}{x-} / {6-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades} / {x-}

Mizrachi had the bring-in on third street and Schwartz completed. Chidwick made the call, as did Mizrachi and three players went on to see fourth street. Schwartz had the high hand on fourth and bet, both Mizrachi and Chidwick called.

On fifth street, Schwartz bet again, Chidwick called and Mizrachi decided to raise. The two Brits didn't want to give their hands up and called. Sixth street still gave Schwartz the betting lead, but he checked as did Chidwick. Mizrachi bet and only Schwartz called.

On seventh street, Schwartz checked again and Mizrachi put in another 100,000 chip bet. This is when things got interesting.

"Ace-five of spades underneath one time? I can't find a hand that I beat," Schwartz started things off.

"How does he raise with jack-four-three on fifth street. It's a joke that he makes every final table," Schwartz went on to complain about Mizrachi's luck.

"I promise, it will only hurt for a second," Mizrachi said before Schwartz finally ended up making the call.

Mizrachi turned over {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for trip fours, and he raked in another big pot. Schwartz angrily threw his chips over to Mizrachi and flicked his cards high up in the air. Schwartz dropped down to under a million while Mizrachi is close to having six.
