Hand #11: Michael Mizrachi Doubles Thru Hafiz Khan to Take the Chip Lead
Level 22: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Hand #11 - Joe Serock raises to 64,000 from middle position and Michael Mizrachi (center) reraises to 177,000 from the cutoff. Hafiz Khan (right) is on the button and cold four-bets to 375,000. Serock folds and Mizrachi calls.
The flop comes Q64 and Mizrachi checks. Khan bets 400,000 and Mizrachi hardly hesitates before moving all-in for 1,013,000. Khan calls.
Mizrachi turns over AQ for top pair. Khan trails with JJ for a pair of jacks. The Q on the turn improves Mizrachi to trip queens and Khan will need a jack on the river in order to claim the pot.
The river brings the 6 and the trip queens give Mizrachi one of the biggest pots of the tournament, not to mention the chip lead.
Michael Mizrachi - 2,800,000 (93 BBs)
Hafiz Khan - 2,550,000 (85 BBs)
