It’s better for us to start doing a list with these new names, I am sure they will keep bringing action to WSOP and maybe to other top events around the world, and we can’t keep saying we don’t know them from anywhere. After all, they now belong to the WSOP gold bracelet winners group, which turn them into prestige players which everyone must be aware of when sitting at the tables.

Mizrachi is a total beast when it comes to cashing major events - dam @ 1.5milly winnings.

too bad he wiped that money out by crashing out of the One Drop...

It's amazing that I only know Andy Bloch and Bill Chen ... Since I stopped playing poker I'm so disconnected ... What a pity.
