Michael Mizrachi Wins the Players Championship Event at the 2010 WSOP

The Player's Championship event at the WSOP (World Series of Poker) goes on through the final day, with a lot of poker enthusiasts wondering if a winner would ever be chosen. For much of the poker event, poker pro Robert Mizrachi was the overall chip leader and appeared well on his way to taking home the bracelet.

Instead, it was Mizrachi's brother, Michael, that eventually won the title on June 2nd, 2010. Mizrachi outwitted Vladimir Schmelev and won not only the WSOP bracelet, but won $1,559,046 dollars. Schmelev finished in 2nd place and won $963,375 dollars. But it was not a bad day for Robert Mizrachi, who finished in 2nd place and won $341,429 dollars.

Event#4, which is an Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better poker event, also finished on Wednesday. Michael Chow won the event, with Dan Heimiller finishing in 2nd place. Chow won a total of $237,140 dollars and Heimiller won $146,505 dollars. Ylon Schwartz finished in 3rd place. One tournament in the WSOP has now reached the heads-up portion.

Event#3, a No-Limit Holdem event with a $1,000 dollars buy-in just started its heads-up showdown. Aadam Daya, who has been in the chip lead for much of the past few days, still has a 2.4 million chip lead over Deepak Bhatti. Daya has 7,700,000 chips and Bhatti has 5,300,000 chips.
