Grinder Wins Second WPT Title

Borg_1Cementing his status as one of the world's best tournament players, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi won his second WPT in the span of a year by taking the Borgata Winter Open.

Like Grinder's previous win at the LA Poker Classic last year, he found himself up against Erick Lindgren at the final table.  Lindgren had Grinder on the verge of elimination when play was four-handed, as Grinder was all-in with pocket 4's vs. Lindgren's A-Q.  When a Queen hit on the flop, Mizrachi was on the ropes, but was bailed out when Grinder_3he spiked a 4 on the river.

Lindgren was eliminated soon thereafter by John D'Agostino.  Grinder got on a roll, taking a few big pots off D'Agostino, then won it by hitting two-pair on the final hand.

For the win, Grinder pockets $1,173,373.  D'Agostino banks $591,312.  Here's the rest of the final table breakdown: 3) Erick Lindgren - $282,721, 4) Amnon Filippi $184,785, 5) Josh Spiegelman $147,828, 6) Stuart Patterson $110,871.
