The Grinder Wins Card Player POY, To the Shock of No One

In what has to be the least shocking news story in poker all year, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi has officially won the Card Player POY title.

Grinder_3_2The Grinder has been on a two year run where he's banked over $5M in tournament earnings that can only be described as "sick," "ridiculous," "retarded," "stupid," and a slew of other "bad" sounding words that nowadays means that something is "good." Today's youth...so Mongoloidian. That'll stick, right? Mongolodian? "Josh Smith's dunk last night was Mongolodian dude!" Yep, totally.

After a late charge from Nam Le, JC Tran, and Shannon Shorr, the Grinder, as Snoop Dogg would put it, "scratched them off his balls with his muthafuckin paws" by outlasting them all in the final major event of 2k6, the WPT Five-Diamond Something Something Doyle Brunson Something Something Classic. Grinder finished 29th, cashing over $50k.

In related news, Chad Brown still leads the BLUFF Magazine rankings, and Daniel Negreanu still leads the WCP Player Power Index (although you'll see the Grinder making a charge up our rankings in the next release).

Congrats to Grinder for a Mongolodian year!
