"Pickitup" Dispatches "Gemster"

Chad_Holloway • Level 19: 1,700-3,400, 340 ante

Kevin "VamonosPest" Lutz raised to 7,215 from middle position and "Pickitup" called from the small blind. "Gemster" then three-bet all in for 32,804 from the big, Lutz got out of the way, and "Pickitup" called.

"Pickitup": {q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}
"Gemster": {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

"Gemster" got it in good but fell behind on the {3-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop. The {2-Spades} turn was of no consequence and neither was the {10-Spades} river.

WSOP Legend: 3-Time Poker Players Championship Winner Michael Mizrachi

The World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship (PPC), which was created in 2006, is considered the tournament where the best of the best take on one another and duke it out in a variety of poker games, a reflection of all-around poker skill. Imagine playing the likes of Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, and Daniel Negreanu five days in a row in a short-handed mixed format.

Needless to say, the hefty price tag coupled with a small, elite field created a legacy for the PPC where champions are considered among the greatest overall poker players. A quick glance at its 14-year history shows nothing but greatness among champions, from John Hennigan to Mike Gorodinsky, and with the late David "Chip" Reese as perhaps the event's most fitting inaugural winner back in 2006.

Winning once is the poker professional's dream. Winning two? You're in a league of your own. But winning the toughest event with poker's best three times? Only one man achieved that improbable feat on this day back in 2018, after winning his first two titles in 2010 and 2012: Michael Mizrachi.
