This Guy’s Brother Leading WPT World Championship


While donning a lid didn’t do much for Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi‘s karma yesterday at the 2008 WPT World Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, his brother had a helluva day.

Robert Mizrachi stormed to a huge chip lead, ending the day stacked at 523,200. He’s trailed by Jayde Tran, a woman, with 406,700.

Only 188 remain going into Day 3 play. Defending champ Carlos Mortensen is among the big stacks with 371,600. Some other big name big stacks include Kenny Tran (367,400), Michael Gracz (364,800), Marcel Luske (325,200), Tom Schneider (288,000), Joe Sebok (278,100), Gus Hansen (246,000), our favorite scarf-wearing Euro Dario Minieri (220,000), and the spectacularly breasted J.C. Tran (201,300). Our perennial pick to win it, Huck Seed, is still alive with 71,000.
