We have just been handed the official payouts for the Main Event here at the Bicycle Casino. We had a final total of 176 entries today, making for a grand total of 397 over the three Day 1's. This created a prize pool of $397,000, and the top 45 players will be walking away with a profit. The first payout will be $2,310, and looking at the top, the winner will get $82,015. Good luck to all the players still in the event!

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.

We have a few more photos of some of the late registrants in today's event. Right now the clock reads 137, and registration will still be open through the dinner break. Right now, the chip leader is none other than our host, Michael Mizrachi, who has knocked out a handful of players on his way to a stack of over 140,000 with the blinds at 150-300!

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!
