Michael Mizrachi managed to top a field of 460 entries in World Series of Poker Event #27: $1,500 Stud Hi-Lo to claim his fifth WSOP title plus gold bracelet and $142,801.
With this win Mizrachi climbed his lifetime winnings up to $17,172,436.
"I feel like I had a pretty good edge on the players in certain spots where they probably wouldn't play hands," Mizrachi told WSOP reporters. "I played those hands where I know they're going to fold and that way I can win a lot of antes and bring-ins."
This also means that Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi becomes the first player to win five bracelets this decade.
Mizrachi started the final table as a chip leader, but lost that lead when Robert Gray sent Jan Stein ($29,818) to the rail in 5th place. Elias Hourani ($42,014) followed Stein, leaving Michael Sopko, Gray and The Grinder to fight for the title.
Sopko busted out at third spot, losing all his chips to Mizrachi's full house. Third place prize money of $60,330 is the largest live cash of his career.
In the final hand we saw Gray ahead with a pair of kings on 4th street, but Mizrachi connected for two pair on river, sealing his victory and sending Gray home with $88,254, while claiming the bracelet himself.
