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

A Game of Give and Take


Michael Mizrachi wasn't able to hold onto his newfound 1.0 million in chips for very long. He opened a pot to 300,00 from the hijack position, then called when button player Michiel Sijpkens re-raised to 840,00.

Mizrachi took a somewhat non-standard line by leading into Sijpkens for 700,000 on an ace-high flop, {9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Sijpkens called that bet. Both players then checked the {6-Diamonds} turn. The dealer burned and turned the {k-Spades} on the river. Mizrachi checked it to Sijpkens, who made a healthy bet of 1.2 million. Mizrachi tanked for more than a minute before finally surrendering his cards.

One lone spectator clapped for Sijpkens as he pulled in the pot to climb to 8.8 million in chips.
