Mizrachi Folds River

On a flop of {3-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} Michael Mizrachi was heads up in a pot. Justin Young checked and Mizrachi checked behind. The {9-Hearts} turned and Young check-called a 2,000 bet from the Grinder.

The river brought a fourth heart in the form of the {7-Hearts}. Young bet 5,000 only to have Mizrachi raise it to 12,000. Young three-bet to 22,000 and Mizrachi tanked for over a minute before folding, leaving himself with only 11,000 behind. Young triumphantly showed {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for air.

Immediately after the hand another player at the table tweeted the following:

Flowers Takes Some From Bonomo


Justin Bonomo remains among the chip leaders of this event, even after handing over some chips to double World Poker Tour winner Randal Flowers.

The flop read {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} when Flowers bet 5,400 from the big blind, and Bonomo called on the button. The turn was the {10-Diamonds} and Flowers fired out another 9,775. Bonomo took around 15 seconds, and made the call.

The river was the {7-Clubs} and Flowers stacked his chips, and moved them into the pot. Bonomo had a sour look on his face as he double-checked his cards. Those cards flew towards the muck a few seconds later, and Flowers raked in the pot.

Bloch Runs Into Flush

We found Andy Bloch and two other players looking at a board of {9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{K-Clubs}. Bloch and another player checked to the player on the button. The button bet out 10,475 and Bloch thought for about a minute before dropping a call in the center of the table.

The other player got out of the way and Bloch's opponent showed {Q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for a heart flush. Bloch mucked his hand and his opponent dragged in the pot.
