The winner of the $10,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha World Championship was Robert Mizrachi, from Las Vegas, NV. He is a 28-year-old professional poker player. Mizrachi is originally from Miami. This is his first victory at the World Series of Poker. -- The Mizrachi name is well-known in tournament poker circles. Robert's younger brother Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi has been one poker's most successful players over the past five years. Yet, it was the elder brother Robert who was the first Mizrachi to win a WSOP gold bracelet. -- Mizrachi learned to play poker from his mother. He then taught his brothers how to play the game. Mizrachi credits much of his success to diversifying as a poker player. "There are so many great No-Limit Hold'em players," Mizrachi said. "But if you want to be rally considered a great (player) you have to master all forms of poker." -- Diversification has certainly worked for Mizrachi. He already has five cashes at this year's WSOP, including three final table appearances. A testament to his all-around talent as a player, Mizrachi made the two previous final tables in H.O.R.S.E. - finishing 5th and 6th respectively. With a 1st, 5th, 6th, 26th, and 40th place finishes, Mizrachi is now in the running for 2007 WSOP "Player of the Year," currently led by two-time winner Tom Schneider.
