Mizrachi Wins His Second Career BraceletPublished on June 22nd, 2014 8:42 pm EST
Robert Mizrachi took down the first ever Dealer's Choice event at the World Series of Poker for $147,092 last night. This was the second bracelet of the 35 year-old Mizrachi's career, as he also took down the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship in 2007 for $768,889.
As mentioned, this was the first ever edition of the $1,500 Dealer's Choice event at the World Series of Poker. Players on the button (dealer) were allowed to choose from 16 different games ranging from Pot Limit Omaha to No Limit Hold'em to more exotic games like Badeucy and Badacey. This created a very interesting dynamic and obviously benefitted the more well-rounded and experienced poker players (like Robert Mizrachi) who had a thorough knowledge of all of the different types of games.
The event ended up being overwhelmingly popular with players, with some going as far as to say that it was their favorite tournament ever. The World Series of Poker brought out their most proficient dealers for this event, and the players were generally very pleased with the quality of dealing.
Here is how the final table of the event ended up turning out:
1. Robert Mizrachi, $147,092
2. Aaron Schaff, $90,854
3. Shane Abbott, $58,414
4. Bill Chen, $38,735
5. Daniel Idema, $26,444
6. Frank Kassela, $18,575
The final hand of the event came in A-5 Triple Draw.
