For much of the final table Mizrachi was the chip-leader and looked to be playing solid poker, until a couple of confrontations with the crafty Joseph Cheong knocked Mizrachi back a bit. With the table down to 6-handed play Mizrachi found himself in a difficult spot against his good friend John Racener who came over the top of Mizrachi’s open-raise with an all-in shove. It appeared that Mizrachi desperately wanted to fold the hand but the odds were simply too good, and he found himself on the bad-side of an AK vs. A8 confrontation.

After a paired flop Mizrachi saw some hope of a chopped pot, but a King on the Turn gave Racener the win and left Mizrachi drawing dead.

Not long after Racener doubled through Mizrachi, “The Grinder” got all his chips in on a Queen-high flop with Q8, only to see Jonathan Duhamel call with well-hidden a pair of Aces. This ended Michael Mizrachi’s incredible 2010 WSOP which saw him win his first WSOP bracelet in the $50k Players Championship, finish 5th in the Main Event, challenge for the Player of the Year award, and saw him shoot up to 7th place on the all-time tournament money-list.
