Michael Mizrachi - 9th Place

Michael Mizrachi just found himself in a three-way battle with David "ODB" Baker and Daniel Negreanu in which he had position on the other two, but was playing with a short stack.

They reached the first draw with Baker and Mizrachi each taking two cards and Negreanu one. Baker checked, Negreanu bet, and both Mizrachi and Baker called. Baker and Negreanu took one each on the second draw while Mizrachi took two, and again it checked to Negreanu who bet. This time Mizrachi committed his last 15,000 with his call, and Baker called as well.

The third draw saw Baker taking one, Negreanu standing pat, and Mizrachi tanking for a while before discarding two. Baker then check-folded to Negreanu's bet, with the latter quickly saying "Ten!" as he tabled {10-}{8-}{6-}{4-}{2-}.

Mizrachi checked his cards, then shook his head when he saw he'd failed to draw a better hand and mucked.

After starting the day with one of the short stacks, Negreanu is now going to be taking the chip lead to the first break.
