Michael Mizrachi Eliminated From WSOP 2010 Final TableNovember 7, 2010 4:42 am
After an incredible night in which he was able to fight his way back from a 7th position starting stack to holding the chip lead, Michael Mizrachi has now been eliminated from the WSOP 2010 Final Table.
Michael Mizrachi caught a great break earlier on in the session when he knocked Matt Jarvis out in 8th in an exciting hand in which both players were all-in pre-flop.
Mizrachi held an A-Q to his opponent’s pocket nines and despite both players making full houses on a Q-Q-8-9-A board, Mizrachi held the better hand to boost his stack and propel himself into the top three big stacks.
Mizrachi then continued to win several un-contested pots to take the chip lead into the break. However, on returning to the table Mizrachi then lost 12 million of his chips after having his 2.5m raise holding Ad-8d re-raised all-in to 9.8m by Racener with A-K. Mizrachi lost the hand and a little later another where he re-raised Duhamel (A-9) all-in holding a pair of threes. Duhamel made the call and a K-9-5-9-J board brought Mizrachi no relief, who was then reduced to the 28.4 million short stack.
Eventually, Michael Mizrachi got his remaining chips in holding Q-8 on a 5-4-Q flop only to be called by Duhamel with pocket aces. With a J falling on the turn and a K on the river, Mizrachi’s WSOP adventure rudely came to an end and he exited the tournament in 5th place for $2,332,992.
Although he will be disappointed at not winning the title, it certainly has been a tremendous WSOP 2010 for Michael Mizrachi who returns home with $3,948,094 in prize monies from this year’s WSOP plus a career first WSOP bracelet in the $50,000 The Poker Player’s Championship Event.
Congratulations to Michael Mizrachi on having an outstanding 2010 World series Of Poker.
