Mizrachi Goes For Bracelet Number Five on Final Day of Event #27: Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Michael Mizrachi

The 2019 World Series of Poker will crown a new bracelet winner today, as Event #27: Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better draws to a close. Six players are still in the running from an original field of 460, and although each remaining player has already locked up $21,575, they're all still shooting for the top prize of $142,801 and the coveted WSOP bracelet when action kicks off at Noon local time.

Leading the way is none other than four-time WSOP bracelet winner Michael Mizrachi, who brings back 23 big bets and the chip lead with his 1,355,000 stack. Mizrachi, a three-time $50,000 Poker Players Championship bracelet winner, is looking to pass his brother Robert and jump into a tie for 16th on the all-time bracelet list. Mizrachi has held the chip lead for most of the previous two days of play, and will be looking to use that stack to help propel him to more WSOP gold.

Two players have similar stacks along with Mizrachi, as Michael Sopko (1,184,000) and Robert Gray (1,028,000) both have plenty of big bets to work with. On the other side of the coin, Elias Hourani (425,000), Jose Paz-Gutierrez (300,000), and Jan Stein (204,000) all begin on the short side of things, and will need to make a move in a hurry to survive.
