Robert Mizrachi Holds Chip Lead in Aruba

Saturday, 10 October 2009

Robert Mizrachi began Day 4 of the UltimateBet Aruba Poker Classic Championship with a dominating chip lead over the remaining field of 36 players. He ended it the same way, except now he only has six others to beat if he is to claim a $750k first-place prize.

Play at the final table commences today at 4pm (noon local time) with Mizrachi holding a large but not insurmountable chip lead. The full final table standings are as follows:

Seat 1: Chase Steely - 1,293,000
Seat 2: Jose Roberto Santos - 211,000
Seat 3: Brandon Hall - 442,000
Seat 4: Brock Parker - 1,241,000
Seat 5: Eric "basebaldy" Baldwin - 1,573,000
Seat 6: Robert Mizrachi - 1,977,000
Seat 7: Matt Ross - 301,000

The final table is traditionally six-handed; however since the players were going to condense into a 7-handed table before the last six were decided, they opted to simply end play with seven players.
