Main Event Day 2: Paterson Out, Grinder Up

$1,500 + $150 Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘n’ Poker Open” Main Event

Blinds: 1k/2k/300 ante

The final action before the break so two big swings. Stuart Paterson and Michael Mizrachi were on opposite ends of the poker room and they had different fortunes. Paterson came into Day 2 with a short stack but double early in Level 11 but could not complete the comeback. He was sent out just before the break but we didn’t catch the hand.

Mizrachi went on break late because he was stacking chips as the rest of the table walked downstairs. He managed Aces in that hand for a full double through former chipleader Serge Coles and now “The Grinder” is sitting behind 370,000.
