No sooner had Michael Mizrachi returned to his table after sweating the elimination of his brother Daniel than he was involved in a sizable pot of his own. He and Gerasimos Deres got the chips in pre-flop for 310,000 each, with Deres the player at risk of elimination. He tabled {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and was racing Mizrachi's suited Big Slick, {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}. Mizrachi hit an ace on the {a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{j-Spades} and a king when the turn fell {k-Hearts}. That left Deres high and dry when the river blanked {10-Spades}.

Mizrachi is up to about 940,000.
