Michael Mizrachi Could His Second World Series of Poker Bracelet of 2010 Later Today

Published on June 5th, 2010 4:21 pm EST

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, who won his very first World Series of Poker bracelet earlier this week in the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, has put himself in contention to win yet another title.

When Day 2 of the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship came to a close earlier today, Mizrachi was sitting third in chips with just 12 players left in the event.

Vladimir Schmelev, who finished in second place in the $50k Poker Player's Championship to Mizrachi, is currently leading the $10k Seven Card Stud Championship heading into the final day of play on Saturday. Schmelev will take a chip stack of around 921k with him into Day 3.

Sirious Jamshidi finished Day 2 second in chips (638k), while Mizrachi finished with a stack of around 544k.

Here are the current chip stacks heading into the final day of play on Saturday:

Vladimir Schmelev - 921k
Sirious Jamshidi - 638k
Michael Mizrachi - 544k
Nikolay Evdakov - 543k
Steve Billirakis - 448k
Joe Cassidy - 410k
Men Nguyen - 302k
Dan Heimiller - 222k
Eric Buchman - 142k
Ray Dehkharghani - 132k
Brandon Adams - 115k
Todd Barlow - 85k

There are a number of WSOP bracelet holders still alive in this event (Men Nguyen, for instance, has six), so Mizrachi will have his work cut out for him if he wants to win his second bracelet.

All 12 of the players who are still alive in this event are guaranteed at least $32,909 for making it this far, with the eventual winner receiving just under $400k ($394,800).

Can Mizrachi become the first multiple bracelet winner at the 2010 World Series of Poker? We'll find out later today - the final table gets under way at 3 pm local time.
