Robert Mizrachi or Robbie is often known as the one who kick started the Mizrachi brothers’ poker career. The eldest of four brothers Robbie introduced his brothers, twins Michael and Eric to the game and they’re both poker professionals now. Born and brought up in Florida, Robbie started playing more than a decade back and has had a string of wins recently.
He won a tournament in London’s Victoria Casino years back but it wasn’t till 2003 that the world started noticing this golden boy of the Mizrachi poker legacy. He was amongst tournament money from the time he entered the Carnival of Poker III in Las Vegas in 2000 but the big cash started flowing in after his €5,000 Lido Championship win. Here he took the Masters Classic of Poker 2004 by storm making himself richer by $482,606.
It seemed like he just wasn’t going to look back after this as he entered tournament after tournament and continued gathering experience and money. The same year he came in 5th at the $3,000 No Limit Hold’em event of the Five-Diamond World Poker Classic, Las Vegas cashing in around $36K.
He then showed his class at the Third Annual Five-Star World Poker Classic, Las Vegas in $2,500 No Limit Hold’em in 2005 and took home around $66K. His first WPT performance was mediocre when he came 79th and cashed in $30K in the main event of No Limit Hold’em.
2006 marked a good year for him as his winning streak began with the 2006 Gold Strike World Poker Open, Tunica in the $1K Super Satellite To Main Event. Then he cashed in $65K at the San Jose WPT in the main event of No Limit Hold’em. He then went on to come in first at the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (Evening) of Fourth Annual Five-Star World Poker Classic, Las Vegas.
He cashed in big in the two tournaments that followed and made the world sit up and notice his playing style. At the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event of the Fourth Annual Five-Star World Poker Classic, Las Vegas he came in second and won more than $110K. Another money flow followed at the WPT in Las Vegas as he came in 6th in the $10K main event of the Mirage Poker Showdown winning around $130K.
He literally struck gold in 2007 as he cashed in more than $400K in the $ 7,800 WPT Championship Event - No Limit Hold'em in the PokerStars Caribbean Poker Adventure, Paradise Island. He had come in 4th here and his confidence was sky high now. But success at the WSOP had been eluding him so far and this was the year where he was going to make his mark at the biggest tournament of poker.
He won the bracelet in the $ 10,000 World Championship Pot Limit Omaha
38th World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2007, Las Vegas and cashed in more than $750K in a single win. At the same tournament he reached three final tables and finished in the money in the $2,500 H.O.R.S.E and the $5,000 H.O.R.S.E events as well.
There has been no looking back for Robbie since then and he has done well for himself in 2008 as well. He finished 13th in the $ 25,000 No Limit Hold'em - Championship Event of the Sixth Annual Five Star World Poker Classic - WPT World Championship, Las Vegas and took earnings of $130K.
