Who's Gonna Stop Him?



Well, Bill Chen gave it a go, but he just came up short. Michael Mizrachi keeps tearing up his opponents and he just won another big pot.

From the hijack Mizrachi raised and Chen called on the button. The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{2-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Mizrachi bet, Chen raised, Mizrachi three-bet and Chen put in the fourth bet. Mizrachi made the call.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and Mizrachi check-called. The river was the {3-Clubs} and Mizrachi bet, Chen raised, Mizrachi three-bet and Chen called.

Mizrachi turned over {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for the nut flush and nut low. Chen showed {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for the nut low and a weaker flush. Chen got a quarter of the pot and Mizrachi is now over four million in chips!
