Posted by Steve Ruddock on May 31, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

2010 wsopLadies and gentlemen, we have our first storyline of the 2010 World Series of Poker! With 21 players left, the Mizrachi brothers have taken command of the tournament with Mike “The Grinder” Mizrachi sitting atop the leader-board, and his twin (actually triplet) brother Robert in 6th place!

The win would be huge for Mike Mizrachi who has recently hit a rough stretch from bad investments and management and has had a couple of properties foreclosed on. As one of the most respected and admired poker players here is hoping that “The Grinder” can finish the deal, put his current financial issues behind him, and get back to focusing on playing top-notch poker.

Day 4 play will see the money bubble burst, the final table lineup be decided, and plenty of top quality poker played as the best players in the world battle it out in the Players Championship.

The money bubble for the event will be reached when 16 players remain; here is the complete prize structure for the event:

1st $1,559, 046
2nd $963,375
3rd $603,348
4th $436,865
5th $341,429
6th $272,275
7th $221,105
8th $182,463
9th-10th $152,730
11th-12th $129,957
13th-14th $113,030
15th-16th $98,330
