WSOP 2016: Robert Mizrachi claims fourth bracelet, Collossus attracts less than expected

Robert Mizrachi claims fourth bracelet

Robert Mizrachi has taken down the USD$10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship Event after besting a final table packed with big names. Three time bracelet winner George Danzer took 3rd place in the event, while six time bracelet winner Ted Forrest finished 4th. WPT winner and single bracelet winner David Benyamine finished 6th. In order to claim the title he had to defeat bracelet holder and winner of this event in 2014 – Matt Grapenthien who had been a danger throughout. Mizrachi takes home USD$242,662 for winning the event, but also now has the family bragging rights, as he now has more bracelets than brother Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. Phil Hellmuth, the man who is seeking bracelet number 15 also attended this event, but didn’t manage to get close to the final table.

Collossus attracts lower than expected field

As this event approached, expectations were high, with speculation about a 30,000 or more field size being put forward. The WSOP probably would have been happy with any number that broke their own record of 22,374 entrants from this event last year but, In fact, that number would not be reached, and although the number of 21,613 this year is an amazing field size – it is not entirely what was hoped for. Even with the modest field size, the prize pool still grew to USD$10,806,500, providing a 1st place payout figure of USD$1,000,000. Quite a return on a mere $565 investment.

As the action unfolded and play eventually got down to the final table stage, no familiar names were still in contention, but this is no great surprise in such a huge field spanning several days. After an action packed final table, it was Ben Keeline who managed to defeat the remaining players. He takes home a life changing 1st prize and a gold WSOP bracelet.
