"The Grinder" Is In The House

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Grinder vs. Harder

Table 45 was the last table to set up before the 4:00 registration close-out deadline.

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi came in late because as he told me, "he was tired".

Grinder's brother Robert is also playing in the Championship Event.

Borgata is excited to have Michael back as he is defending his 2006 Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship Title.

Mizrachi took a hit early but plenty of time and chips to recover.

Within the first ten hands, Christian Harder on the button woke up to pocket kings and took down a healthy pot against The Grinder who was holding nines.

How about 7 bets pre-flop between these heavy weights.
Raise, re-raise, re-re-raise, re-re-re-raise, re-re-re-re-raise.

"They're already taking all my money" joked Grinder.

Christian has 54,000 and Grinder's got 13,500.

Another familiar face at the table sitting between Harder and Mizrachi is Steve "The Terminator" Krasner.

Careful Steve, the bullets are flying at 45
and you don't want to get caught in the crossfire.
