Robert Mizrachi

It took an extra day, but Robert Mizrachi is now a five-time WSOP bracelet winner.

The final three in Event #13: $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship returned for Day 4, with Ryutaro Suzuki and Michael Martinelli falling just short as Mizrachi picked up $333,045 after topping a field of 141 players.

The result comes ten years since his victory in the $1,500 Dealer's Choice Championship, and sees him draw level with his brother Michael with a handful of WSOP titles.

While Robert's older brother Michael, aka "The Grinder," has received more mainstream attention from the poker world, the newest five-time bracelet winner is among the best in the world.

Prior to the start of the final table, Robert let everyone in the WSOP $25k Fantasy Draft know they undervalued him. He went for just $1, the minimum bid possible, to Team The Dinkers. The five-time bracelet winner, with this victory, is already a steal at that price regardless of how he performs the remainder of the summer.

Winner's Reaction

After his win, Mizrachi said that he felt he was "playing his best game right now" and that it felt good to be back in the WSOP's winner's circle.

"It feels great," he said. "I'm playing my best game right now — probably better than ever. I'm so happy. I just want to focus and be there for my family and hopefully good things will happen."

Yesterday, the atmosphere was convivial with games chosen by opponents, dealers — even the rail — but today, Mizrachi said, was all business.

"I'm playing my best game right now — probably better than ever

"We had to figure out [which games] we both agreed on and I was happy with my choices. I feel like I played my best game."

"I like Pot Limit [games] because you can control the pot against a weaker player. He can't really put pressure on you pre-flop, so you can see more flops and you can really control things post-flop."

"It's a more skilled structure as opposed to No-Limit where he could just go all in on any hand and it becomes higher variance."

Final Day Action

Mizrachi started the day as chip leader, and quickly got to work extending the lead over his opponents. He almost eliminated Ryutaro Suzuki in 2-7 Triple Draw, but the Japanese player was left with 100,000 chips after folding

Ultimately, on the very next hand, it was Michael Martinelli who sent Ryutaro to the rail in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, but he still faced a 2:1 chip deficit heads-up.

And, in truth, the comeback never looked to be on. Mizrachi stretched his lead further with a scoop in Badeucey, extended his chip lead in Pot-Limit Omaha and got it done in Pot Limit 2-7 Triple Draw to wrap up the day inside of an hour.

What's next for the WSOP's newest five-time champion? His eyes are set on another bracelet:

"I'm going to try and play more [events] while I'm playing well."
