Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

One Million, One Mizrachi

Michael Mizrachi, from Day 7 action

Some of the most dangerous hands you can play in flop poker are blind-on-blind battles, especially in an unraised pot. Mads Wissing, sitting in the small blind, was the first player into the last pot at the secondary feature table. He limped in, with Michael Mizrachi checking behind. Both players also checked a {2-Spades}{a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} flop.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds}. Wissing fired a bet of 225,000 into the middle, with Mizrachi opting to call. When the river came {8-Clubs} Wissing didn't slow down. He bet another 440,000. That bet was raised by Mizrachi to 990,000. Wissing called, then saw that Mizrachi rivered two pair, {j-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. That hand wound up the winner, allowing Mizrachi to increase his count to about 8.3 million. Wissing is hurting with just 1.4 million.
