Mizzi has absolutely owned this event since it was launched. No one else has come even close to matching his success in the High Stakes Showdown.
According to thepokerdb.com, Mizzi has now taken down this event 6 times since it began on July 8th.
On December 16th, he took down the 4-man Showdown for $25k.

And finally, on July 15th, Mizzi took down the 16-man field for a total cash of $72k.
That's a ridiculous $312k in total cashes and six victories since the event started in July.
