Michael Mizrachi wins his first WSOP Bracelet

One of the most interesting tournaments this year at the WSOP, $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, is now over. WSOP Gold Bracelet, Chip Reese Memorial Trophy and the $1,559,046 went eventually to Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi (pictured).

This televised final table was played as No Limit Hold'em, and in Heads Up Mizrachi beated quite unknown Russian player Vladimir Schmelev.

In the last hand of the tournament Schmelev was very low on chips, and his Q-8 couldn't beat Mizrachi's Q-5 when turn brought the five of hearts.

1. Michael Mizrachi 1,559,046$
