WSOP 2014: Robert Mizrachi Won the Prestigious Dealer's Choice Event

Posted 6 days 16 hours ago by PokerNetwork Staff

Just minutes ago, another well-known poker pro managed to capture a title on the 2014 World Series of Poker. Robert Mizcrachi, brother of 2010 November Niner Michael Mizrachi tested his luck on the Event #41: $1,500 Six-Handed Dealer's Choice tournament's 419 deep field, and fought his way to the final.

Robert Mizrachi began the last day as the chip leader and just seven and a half hours later he was awarded his second career World Series of Poker bracelet. Mizrachi overcame a severe chip deficit and bested Aaron Schaff during heads up play to earn $147,092 in first-place prize money as well as the prestige of being the champion of the first-ever dealer's choice event.

On the final hand of the match, Mizrachi had worn Schaff down to about 3.5 big bets in the draw games. Mizrachi had the game selection and chose A-5 triple draw. The two got it all in for Schaff's tournament life before the second draw. Mizrachi stood pat for the final two draws while his opponent opted for one card on each pull.

To clinch the match, Mizrachi tabled his made {6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{a-Spades} and saw that Schaff's {7-}{5-}{3-}{a-} left him drawing dead. Mizrachi jumped up from the table and greeted his rail, which included his brother and three-time bracelet winner Michael Mizrachi. Schaff, on the other hand, was forced to settle for a runner-up finish and $90,854 in prize money.
