"You think he's gonna die, but he multiplies!"

The Grinder's reply, "Nuts."
The Grinder's reply, "Nuts."

This final table is quite possibly one of the most entertaining ones we've seen in a long time, and Michael Mizrachi is mostly responsible for that. Ville Mattila just raised to 12,000 and both blinds defended creating three-way action.

The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and both blinds checked to Mattila who bet 21,000. Roger Hairabedian was in the small blind and he folded. Mizrachi called from the big blind, and another battle between these two emerged.

The turn was the {J-Clubs} and Mizrachi checked again.

"I bet pot," Mattila said, who fired out 80,000. Mizrachi would have have 48,000 chips behind if he decided to call, but he did so.

The river brought out the {2-Spades} and Mizrachi moved all in right away. Mattila wasn't happy, and called reluctantly.

"Nuts," Mizrachi announced as he threw his cards face up on the table. He showed {9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and took down the pot with a straight. Mizrachi is right back in it while Mattila retains a slight chip lead.

"You think he's gonna die, but he multiplies!" Mizrachi said with a smile as he began stacking his new chips. This final table is far from over!
