Michael Mizrachi Discusses WSOP Bracelet Number 2

Florida pro Michael Mizrachi won his first WSOP bracelet last year at the coveted $50,000 The Poker Player’s Championship for $1,559,046. Now, “The Grinder” has repeated the feat once more, this time in Cannes at the 2011 WSOP Europe, where he took down the €10,000 NL Split Format event for €336,008 ($482,008).
Commenting after his remarkable second bracelet win, Mizrachi, who also had a 2nd place finish at WSOP 2011 at the Omaha & 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better event for $158,148 explained to PokerListings:
“Any time’s a good time to win a poker tournament. But the poker economy isn’t exactly what it used to be in the US right now with online poker and everything so I feel fortunate to be able to get this win.”
“I had a second-place finish this summer at the WSOP and I was right there with a huge chip lead so coming back and getting that second bracelet means a lot to me.”
With his latest bracelet win in Cannes, Mizrachi has now amassed $11,700,754 in live tournament winnings, taking him into 7th spot on poker’s all-time live tournament money list. The 30 year-old has also been playing poker for over half his life, having cashed in at his first live event in 2004.
During that time, Mizrachi’s WSOP achievements include 25 cashes at the WSOP with 13 final tables accounting for $5,085,725 of his winnings. In addition to his 2 WSOP bracelets, he also has 2 WPT titles to his credit.
Finally, talking about his blessed poker career thus far, Michael Mizrachi commented:
“I’ve been playing since I was 15 years old and I knew from the first day that things would go well. I’ve been a winner since day one and you have your ups and downs but I feel like I’ve seen it all in poker, high in the sky and rock bottom. I actually enjoy the swings a bit and even though I hope I can avoid them, I like the action.”
