Grinder Grinded Down


Yarron Bendor check-called a bet from Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi on the turn, and then did the same on fifth street. From there both players checked the remaining streets and Bendor signaled all he had was jacks. Mizrachi squeezed out his last card, threw his hands up in the air and then mucked in frustration.

Mizrachi: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} / {10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / (x)
Bendor: {A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {3-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

Xuan Liu Eliminated in 6th Place ($29,985)

Michael Mizrachi had the bring in and faced a completion raise by Xuan Liu, who started the hand with just 37,000. Mizrachi quickly raised and Liu called off.

Mizrachi: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} / {5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs} / {5-Hearts}
Liu: {2-Clubs}{2-Spades} / {7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Spades} / {10-Diamonds}

Liu managed to take the lead on fifth street, but it was short lived as Mizrachi stole it back on sixth. Seventh was no help to Liu and she finished in sixth place for $29,985.

Liu Crippled

Heads-up action between Xuan Liu and Brandon Shack-Harris.

Shack-Harris was the bring-in with the {2-Diamonds}, and Liu raised with the {Q-Clubs}. Shack-Harris raised it right back, and Liu made the call to proceed.

Shack-Harris: (x-x) / {2-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {5-Spades} {J-Hearts} / (x)
Liu: (x-x) / {Q-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {J-Spades} {9-Diamonds} / (x)

Shack-Harris bet it the whole way, and Liu was put to a decision on seventh street. She had just 15,000 chips left in front of her as she faced the final bet. After a few moments of pondering, she surrendered her cards into the muck.

Shack-Harris flashed a {3-} and a {4-} to show the wheel, and Liu knocked the table in acknowledgement.

Liu managed to split the next three pots she played, snagging the low half on each hand to claw back up to about one big bet.

Liu Doubles Then Misreads

Xuan Liu brought it in and then called the raise by Yarron Bendor after the rest of the field had gotten out of the way. Liu then took the lead on the turn and led out, which Bendor called. Again Liu led out on fifth but this time Bendor raised. Liu only had 18k remaining and called off.

Bendor: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} / {K-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} / {4-Hearts}
Liu: {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} / {3-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} / {8-Clubs}

Liu was behind when the money went in, but sixth street treated her kindly as it delivered trips. Seventh changed nothing and she doubled on the hand.

Not long after, Liu would bring it in for the full 20,000 and was called by Bendor. The latter proceeded to check-call a bet on the turn before leading out on fifth street. Liu not only called that bet but also bets on both sixth and seventh.

Liu: {3-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Spades} / {2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Bendor: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{6-Spades} / {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Spades}

Liu began to pull her chips back and it was clear she was under the impression that she had a low. It was quickly pointed out to her that all she had was a pair of deuces, which meant Bendor scooped the pot. Needless to say, it was a costly mistake by Liu.

Heads-up between Yarron Bendor and Chris Bjorin.

Bendor: (x-x) / {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} / (x)
Bjorin: (x-x) / {7-Diamonds} {3-Spades} {2-Clubs} {A-Clubs} / (x)

When Bendor bet fourth street, Bjorin stuck in a raise. The Swede bet it the rest of the way with Bendor check-calling once he picked up the lead. He called one final bet on the river, holding kings up.

Bjorin had that beat. He tabled {5-Clubs} {4-Hearts} {4-Clubs} / {7-Diamonds} {3-Spades} {2-Clubs} {A-Clubs}, and his wheel givs him the scoop.

Mizrachi Folds to Bjorin


After Brandon Shack-Harris brought it in with the {2-Diamonds}, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi completed and Chris Bjorin put in a raise. Shack-Harris got out of the way and Mizrachi called before betting the turn. Again Bjorin raised and this time Mizrachi slowed down after making the call by checking fifth street. He ended up check calling a bet before folding on sixth.

Bjorin: (x-x) / {2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Mizrachi: (x-x) / {7-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{K-Clubs}

Liu Makes a Monster, Gets Her Money Back

• Nivo 23: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante

Heads-up action between Yarron Bendor and Xuan Liu.

Bendor: (x-x) / {6-Spades} {8-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} {7-Spades} / (x)
Liu: (x-x) / {3-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {A-Spades} / (x)

Liu bet her lead on fourth street, and she bet again on fifth. Bendor raised that bet, though, and Liu called. They both checked on sixth street, and Liu fired back out on seventh. Bendor raised again, but Liu raised right back. Bendor called.

Liu showed up {A-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {2-Spades} / {3-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {A-Spades} — all the aces in the deck.

"Low!" Bendor found half of the pot. He showed {6-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {3-Clubs} / {6-Spades} {8-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} {7-Spades}, and they'll take their money back.
