Michael Mizrachi turned up during late registration, and he’s been nursing a shortening stack for the last several orbits. “The Grinder” found a recent spot to get his last few big blinds into the middle preflop, while Matthew Yorra and another opponent played a pot on the side.
The board ran out [9c 5c 9h Qd Th], and Yorra bet 20,000 on the river. His opponent called, but she couldn’t beat Yorra’s [Kh Jc]. He’d run down the nut straight, and Mizrachi helicoptered his defeated [7c 7h] onto the felt as he departed.
Yorra is now among the chip leaders with four tables left.
Matthew Yorra – 305,000 (31 bb)
Michael Mizrachi – Eliminated
