Caribbean Adventure final table set

10 January 2007

Robert Mizrachi will be a big fish in a small pond of amateurs at the final table of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure as he squares off against a group of relative unknowns.

But one of those amateurs has a mountain of chips.

Tournament newcomer Issac Haxton rode a wave of good cards to turn his Day Three chip lead into a dominating chip stack. Haxton will have $9.2 million in chips, nearly $7 million more than second place Ryan Daut.

Haxton possesses nearly 50 percent of the $18.92 million chips in play. The rest of the field is bunched between $1.1 million and $2.5 million, meaning it will take solid play, good cards, and a great deal of luck to unseat the chip leader and win the $1.5 million first-place prize.

Among the short stacks is the dangerous Mizrachi. He is the only remaining player with late-tournament experience in a major event.

Mizrachi, who is the older brother of two-time WPT champion Michael Mizrachi, finished sixth at the Mirage Poker Showdown last April. The older Mizrachi has $675,000 in career-tournament winnings and is a staple on the circuit.

Mizrachi has $1.2 million in chips.

Also in the final six is Jonathon Little, a small-time tournament player with more than $60,000 in career earnings. His resume includes three cashes at the 2006 World Series of Poker, but he has never won more than $16,000 in one sitting.

Little is guaranteed at least $247,000 in this tournament.

Here are the final table pay-outs:

1 - $1,535,255

2 - $861,789

3 - $550,980

4 - $409,703

5 - $317,873

6 - $247,000

Ryan McLane was a poker reporter for Casino City. Although he has a strong background in reporting, the same can't be said for his poker skills. He has never won a major tournament nor is he a professional player. He applied for this job thinking it was a joke, only to find it out that it's true, people will pay you to write about poker. His favorite word is ridiculous.

After receiving his BA in History from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, he somehow ended up freelance reporting for a couple years before being deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom III with the Massachusetts National Guard. He's back now and is a strong advocate of the phrase "God Bless America."

Currently, Ryan lives in Boston and occasionally makes international treks to cover tournament poker and news. Feature writing is his passion and there is no need to ask for his opinion, he'll probably offer it first - free of charge.
