Three World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, two World Poker Tour (WPT) titles, and more than $15.3 million in live poker tournament winnings help make up Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi’s impressive poker résumé. Come November, Mizrachi is hoping to add a Caribbean Poker Party victory to his accolades.
Hailing from Florida, USA, Mizrachi has spent much of his career travelling around the United States playing major live poker tournaments.
According to Mizrachi’s Hendon Mob page, his first cash came in march 2004 when he finished sixth in a $565 Limit Hold’em event at the New England Poker Classic, which netted him $6,488. A month later, Mizrachi finished 11th in a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em tournament at the 2004 WSOP for $12,620.
Less than eight months later, in December 2004, Mizrachi secured his first six-figure score when he won a $2,080 No Limit Holdem tournament at the Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas for $273,040.
Mizrachi continued steamrollering his opponents, and in January 2005 won another $288,241 by finishing fifth in the $10,200 WPT World Poker Open, before bagging the first of his five seven-figures cashes by taking down the $10,000 WPT L.A. Poker Classic in February 2005 for a cool $1,859,909.
The following year proved successful too, with Mizrachi winning $2,406,971 thanks in part to the $1,173,373 he collected for winning his second WPT title, the $10,000 Borgata Winter Open, but it was 2010 that still is Mizrachi’s best year in terms of money won.
“The Grinder” won the $50,000 Poker Players Championship at the 2010 WSOP for $1,559,046 then finished fifth in the $10,000 WSOP Main Event for a still career best $2,332,992. Since then, Mizrachi has also won the €10,400 Mixed No Limit Hold’em at the 2011 WSOP Europe, and a second Poker Players Championship bracelet at the 2012 WSOP.
Although Mizrachi may not play as much poker as in the earlier stages of his illustrious career, the man known as “The Grinder” is still a major threat whenever he sits at a poker table. His unorthodox, super-aggressive style of play means he risks busting from events early, but if he manages to amass a decent stack, he becomes almost unplayable as he will relentlessly bet and raise opponents. You have been warned!
