Mizrachi Getting Grinded Down

Posted 2012-07-01 GMT-7 by

We picked up the action on the turn with 270,000 in the pot and a board reading {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, who just won the $50,000 Poker Players Championship a few days ago for the second time in three years, was first to act and checked, opening the door for Daniel Negreanu to bet 105,000.

Mizrachi proceeded to check-raise to 225,000, Negreanu called, and the {A-Hearts} was put out on the river. Mizrachi grabbed about a third of his stack and fired out a bet of 325,000.

"You got kings full?" Negreanu asked aloud as he's prone to do. "I shouldn't even be tanking this long," he added after a few moments and tossed in the call. Mizrachi signaled that it was a good call and mucked when Negreanu turned over {A-Spades}{7-Spades}.
