Poker Pro to Play in $10k BC Betting Challenge

Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Poker Pro and World Series of Poker Bracelet Winner, confirmed today that he will play in the $10,000 Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge (BCBC) taking place at Santa Anita Park Nov. 2 and 3 during the World Championships.

“The BCBC is the mother of all horse racing betting events and its format similarly resembles the World Series of Poker Main Event,” said “The Grinder.” “My betting style with horse racing is similar to poker, loose on the lead and always ready to press.”
 
The Breeders Cup Betting Challenge is unique in its tournament format in that the $10,000 entry fee is split between the live money bankroll ($7,500) and the overall prize pool ($2,500). The tournament winner must accumulate the highest live money bankroll over the two-day event, plus the winning share of the prize pool, which in 2011 represented over $270,000.

While the BCBC nears a record number of participants, the Breeders’ Cup Celebrity Poker Invitational, October 30 at Commerce Casino, added two World Series of Poker Bracelet winners, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow and Annie Duke.
 
Hosted by “The Grinder,” The Breeders’ Cup Celebrity Poker Invitational will feature a mix of poker pros, trainers, jockeys and horsemen competing on the felt to raise funds for the charity California Retirement Management Account (CARMA).
 
“I am honored to be hosting this second annual event raising money for retired Thoroughbreds,” “The Grinder said. “I’m glad my fellow poker pros will be in attendance supporting the event and this great cause. It’s going to be an exciting event and one tough tournament.”
