Chan out, Mizrachi surges at WSOP Main Event
It was an eventful day at the 2010 World Series of poker, and as the field shrank from 204 to just 78 there was one very significant elimination: Johnny Chan. Chan was amongst the chip-leaders throughout the tournament, but saw his hopes at a third Main Event Championship and record tying 11th bracelet dashed as he hit the rail early on during Day 6.
While Chan faltered, perhaps the second best-known player left in the tournament, Mike “The Grinder” Mizrachi, was surging forward and finished Day 6 with the second most chips in the field. Mizrachi has had a monster 2010 WSOP with 4 cashes; 3 final tables; and his 1st WSOP bracelet in the $50k Players Championship. Mizrachi could tie Frank Kassela for the Player of the Year award should he win the WSOP Main Event; possibly putting the finishing touches on one of the greatest WSOP performances of all-time.
There are still a lot of sharks swimming in the waters at the Rio, including chip-leader Theo Jorgenen who built-up a near 9.3 million chip stack on Day 6.And then there is Alexander Kostritsyn, who is currently sitting in 8th place with 5.715 million in chips.
