Poker Champion Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi to Continue Representing Breeders’ Cup
After a successful 2011 campaign that raised awareness of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships within the poker community, increased the presence of poker professionals at the Breeders’ Cup event and staged the first ever Breeders’ Cup Celebrity Poker Invitational, the Breeders’ Cup has extended its partnership with DeepStacks Pro Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi.
Mizrachi, a World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour Champion, will take part in the wildly popular Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge and will actively encourage his fellow poker pros to participate in the $10,000 handicapping event. Complete rules and information on the Betting Challenge can be found here http://www.bcqualify.com/about.aspx
The Breeders’ Cup will take place November 2-3 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., outside Los Angeles.
Mizrachi, who has been a natural fit for the Breeders’ Cup as it continues its relationship in the poker world, will also headline The DeepStacks Poker Tour Breeders’ Cup Celebrity Invitational to be held later this year. While details of the tournament are forthcoming, it promises to be a fun and exciting event headlined by trainers, jockeys, owners, celebrities and poker pros.
“Partnering with the Breeders’ Cup has been amazing. I look forward to fine-tuning my handicapping skills as I prepare for the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge. Check my Twitter and Facebook accounts for updates as I plan to visit a number of tracks throughout the summer,” said Mizrachi.
