Michael Mizrachi has won the World Series of Poker’s $50k Poker Player Championship – a feat he also accomplished back in 2010. The $1,451,527 payday will also propel his lifetime earnings to $14,069,765, placing him fourth on the All Time Money list and surpassing Phil Hellmuth.

Mizrachi had tough competition at the final table, including Andy Bloch, Luke Schwartz, Bill Chen and Chris Klonnicki – whom he would play head’s-up with. Mizrachi started with nearly a 2-1 chip lead against Klodnicki and used that advantage to constantly apply aggressive pressure against his opponent. He also ran well when needed, with proof on the final hand of Omaha 8-or-better:

  • Klodnicki:
  • Mizrachi:
