The WSOP Players Championship is down to its final table. Just eight players now remain in contention for a $1.4 million first prize, headed by 2010 November Niner, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi.
The $50,000 Players Championship is ready for its final table at the 2012 World Series of Poker.
The prestigious mega-event yesterday played down to 26 players, and saw Viktor "Isildur1" Blom finish the day as a provisional chip leader.
Following Day 4 at the Rio in Las Vegas, however, Blom had to see his lead disappear, and instead the young Swede finished in 14th place for a $91,000 payout.
In Blom's absence, 2010 November Niner Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi has taken control of the event, and he is now topping the chip counts with a 3,648,000 chip stack with just eight players left.
Mizrachi is followed in second place by Andy Bloch with 3,598,000, Chris Klodnicki in third place with 3,276,000 and Stephen Chidwick in fourth with 2,026,000.
The remaining spots are taken by Luke Schwartz
in fifth with 1,494,000, Bill Chen in sixth with 1,293,000, Roland Israelashvili in seventh with 694,000 and Bruno Fitoussi in eighth with 188,000.
All players are at this point sure to walk away with at least $169,879, while the winner will take home one of the most sought-after golden bracelets of the WSOP schedule, as well as a $1,451,527 first prize.
