2008 WSOP Update: Grinder Guns for 1st Bracelet in $5k No-Limit Hold’em Event

Grinder Mizrachi at the 2008 WSOP

A week ago, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi final tabled the Omaha/7CS Hi-Lo event, only to fall short of his first WSOP bracelet by finishing 8th.

Tonight, we’re down to 13 players in the $5k buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2008 WSOP, and he’s in good position to make a run again, stacked third in chips with 850,000.

Scott Seiver, who already has two cashes this series, is the chipleader with just under 1.4 mil. Rajesh Vohra is second with just over a mil.

Speaking of Indian, if you’re ever stuck at the Rio, the curiously named, not that we’re curious, Gaylords is a must. Try the chicken tikka masala with a couple of orders of garlic naan bread. It’s good eatin’.

What were we talking about again? Oh … so yeh we saw this chick again. Damn.

Whaaaaaat? Grinder just busted while we were writing this post. So much for all of the above. They’re down to 10 now. Jacobo Fernandez is now in third and Seiver’s over the 2 mil mark. Also notable, Scott “SCTrojans” Freeman is still around, stacked at 465k.

    I was covering this event and saw you snapping these pictures of Mizrachi. I thought about running to get my own camera to try to duplicate them, but why bother? Excellent shots.
