World Series of Poker -- Day 2 of Event No. 50 ($5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha)
Robert Mizrachi Looking for Second Pot-Limit Omaha Bracelet
Mizrachi was hovering near the top of the chip counts early Wednesday morning, until a hand versus Andrew Black gave him a massive chip stack of 200,000 more than his nearest competitor.
Black and Mizrachi saw a 9 7 4 flop. Black moved all in. Mizrachi called and tabled the A K 7 7 for a set and the nut flush draw. Black exposed the Q 9 8 7 for top two pair and an inferior flush draw. The 8 fell on the turn and the 10 landed on the river, eliminating Black. Mizrachi collected the massive pot and was around 800,000 after the hand.
Mizrachi is no stranger to tough pot-limit Omaha fields. He won event No. 50 three years ago at the 2007 WSOP. Mizrachi captured his first career bracelet in the $10,000 pot-limit Omaha championship to go along with $768,889 in prize money.
Robert was also at the final table when his brother, Michael Mizrachi, won the $50,000 Players Championship this year. The elder Mizrachi has a solid chance at breaking the one-to-one bracelet tie with his brother when play resumes tomorrow at 3 p.m. PDT.
The action on day two of the $5,000 pot-limit Omaha event was slow. The money bubble burst just one level before play ended for the night.
Nguyen bet 16,000 and D’Angelo raised the pot. Nguyen called. The flop came Q J 9. Nguyen moved all in for 107,000, which was a bit less than the pot. D’Angelo had Nguyen slightly covered. D’Angelo tanked before eventually calling. Nguyen exposed the A 8 4 3 while D’Angelo exposed the A A 9 5 and was far ahead. The 10 on the turn and the 5 on the river didn’t change anything. Nguyen was eliminated and the remaining players were in the money.
Other notables who have cashed and still remain in the event include Ran Azor, Benjamin Spindler, Jason Mercier, Di Dang, Joe Beevers, Josh Tieman, Julian Gardner, Joe Serock, Eric Liu, Ayaz Mahmood, Justin Smith and Nam Le.
Stay tuned to Card Player tomorrow starting at 3 p.m. PDT for level-by-level updates from event No. 50. The plan is to play down to a winner.
