Strip Poker: The Grinder's Tourney at Planet Hollywood
Play With Michael Mizrachi in a $60 Buy-in Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Night
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:30 p.m., Mizrachi is available in the Planet Hollywood poker room for a question-and-answer session. The tournament begins immediately afterwards at 7 p.m. It is a $50 buy-in that gets players $1,500 in chips, but players receive an additional $2,500 chips for an extra $10 add-on.
"I have a great time being here," Mizrachi said. "It is nice to play against people I've never seen before. When you are playing professionals all the time, it is good to change it up and compete against different kinds of styles."
Not only will the player who knocks Mizrachi out of the tournament get a story, but he will also get some extra playing money. There is a $300 bounty on Mizrachi that is paid in promotional chips. One person who got a story and came close to knocking Mizrachi out of a tournament last week was Allen Dacome of Las Vegas. He hit a royal flush on Mizrachi.
"Just before I went all in, I was thinking that I never win with this hand," Dacome said of his K-J of hearts. "He had me beat with ace-high preflop, but I hit a royal on the river! It is too bad for me that he had more chips than I did."
Dacome also said that he was the dealer who dealt the cards on the hand that eliminated Mizrachi from one of the preliminary no-limit events during this summer's WSOP.
"The players here really enjoy playing with Mike," said shift manager Larry Stephens. "They can come in and get autographs, pictures, and ask questions with a real poker celebrity. Plus, the small buy-in and the amount of chips you get is a really great deal for players."
