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

Mizrachi Has Support, Finding Chips Again Too

Soi Nguyen made his standard raise to 525,000 to open the pot, and Michael Mizrachi called next door to go heads up to the flop.

It came {8-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {A-Hearts}, and Nguyen continued out with a bet of 700,000. Without much delay, Mizrachi two-fisted a raise -- 2.070 million into the pot. Nguyen thought it over for just a half minute or so before making the call, and the {7-Hearts} was the next card off the deck. When Nguyen checked, Mizrachi instantly made a small bet of 1 million straight, one again using both hands to plunk in the towers of green chips. Nguyen tanked but was ultimately unable to call; an eruption of noise came from Camp Mizrachi the instant Nguyen's cards hit the muck.

"Let's go baby! Team Mizrachi!"

"All we do is win, win, win. No matter what!"

The cameras were rolling for a long while as the gallery went nuts, and it took maybe a minute for the commotion to die down and emcee Robbie to get a word in on the mic:

"As you might have figured out, The Grinder will win that pot." Another eruption of noise followed.

Grinder has been busy win, win, winning pots lately indeed. That latest one moves him back to about 8 million after being the short stack just a couple orbits ago.
