We were fast approaching the end of Level 21 when Shawn Buchanan raised to 25,000 on the button and Michael Mizrachi mouthed those famous words, "I am all-in."
"I don't want to get to the break," said Mizrachi.
Buchanan thought for a while, like he does, before making the call. When the hands were turned over Buchanan was a BIG favourite to double up.
Mizrachi got to his feet while Buchanan remained seated. The dealer pulled the three cards, turned them over and the shone like a beacon of light for Mizrachi. The crowd cheered and Buchanan sunk in his chair.
So Buchanan needed a jack to survive or Mizrachi would win his second WSOP bracelet.
Turn: & River
So Michael Mizrachi was crowned the €10,400 No Limit Hold'em (Split-Format) Champion and Buchanan had to settle for second place in what has been a great series for the man from Vancouver.
