Michael Mizrachi blank stareMichael "The Grinder" Mizrachi won the second World Series of Poker bracelet of his career on Saturday after taking down the 10k NLHE Split Event (#5) at the World Series of Poker Europe in Cannes, France.

Mizrachi took home 336,008 Euros for his win, which translates into roughly $466,300 USD. Mizrachi now has a little over $11.9 million USD in total lifetime tournament cashes.

Here is how the tournament ended up finishing out:

1. Michael Mizrachi, 336,008 EUR
2. Shawn Buchanan, 207,624 EUR
3. Roger Mairabedian, 112,092 EUR
4. Noah Schwartz, 112,092 EUR
5. Dan Fleyshman, 54,810 EUR
6. Brian Powell, 54,810 EUR
7. Anatolii Ozhenilok, 54,810 EUR
8. Brian Hastings, 54,810 EUR


"The Grinder" is currently in the midst of a torrid multi-year run that has seen him earn roughly $5 million.

Mizrachi's run started at the WSOP $50k Player's Championship in 2010, where he won his first WSOP bracelet and $1,559,046. He followed this up with an appearance at the 2010 World Series of Poker main event final table, where he finished fifth for $2,332,992.

Earlier this year, Mizrachi seemed poised to win his second WSOP bracelet after making a deep run in the $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo event. It was not meant to be though, as "The Grinder" ended up finishing in second place for $158,148.


With his victory on Saturday, Mizrachi moves past John Juanda to take 6th spot on the all-time tournament money list. Only Erik Seidel, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and Jamie Gold have earned more in tournaments than Michael Mizrachi.
