Day 1C Host Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi Eliminated

Michael Mizrachi chipped up early to over 100,000, easily holding the chip lead for some time. However, as many know very well, he is not apt to sit on these chips, and he was still in plenty of pots all day. He was recently eliminated in a huge hand that also gave us a new chip leader, "Super" Mario Esquerra.

We caught up with the action on the turn, with the board showing [Kh][Jd][3s][Kd]. Mizrachi was already all in for his last 20,000, and he was called by Esquerra as well as Bobby Suer. The river came the [4c], and Esquerra fired out 40,000. This was for much of Suer's stack, and he thought it over for some time before calling.

Esquerra tabled [Ks][3d] for kings full, and it was better than the [3h][3c] that Suer held. Mizrachi had [Kc][8h], and his trip kings fell to Esquerra, who is now our chip leader with 190,000.

Exclusive Interview with Day 1C Host Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi

During the first break, we grabbed today's host Michael Mizrachi for a few minutes. He informed us that, as he is prone to do, he was off to a hot start, already knocking out three players on the way to an early chip lead. We talked about that, how much he loves being in LA, and about why this summer should be a good one for him at the WSOP. We hope you enjoy our talk with The Grinder!
