Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi added another prestigious title to his resume yesterday with a win in the WSOPC South Africa main event for $101,267.

One of the most successful poker tournament players of all time, Mizrachi topped a local-heavy field at the Emerald Casino to collect the third-ever South African title.

While the $101k won't add much to Mizrachi's $14m career earnings it does inch him up slightly closer to John Juanda for seventh place on poker's all-time money list.

It also gives him his first WSOP Circuit ring to add to his three WSOP bracelets and two WPT titles.

Dominating much of the field with his play, Mizrachi eliminated six of the final eight players at the final table to secure the win.

Other than Mizrachi and poker icon Scotty Nguyen, the field was predominantly local with South Africans taking up the bulk of the cash spots.

With 116 total runners and a $3,300 buy-in, the prize pool topped $380,000.

The final nine and payouts:

  • 1. Michael Mizrachi – $101,267
  • 2. Karl Myburgh – $62,590
  • 3. Markus Feurie – $44,565
  • 4. Jarred Solomon – $32,372
  • 5. Kinesh Pather – $23,980
  • 6. Kenny Morgan – $18,103
  • 7. Menesh Keshav – $13,924
  • 8. Eric Brand – $10,907
  • 9. Warren Zackey – $8,696

Ninth-place finisher Zackey won the first-ever WSOPC South Africa championship in 2011. For more info on the final table, visit WSOP.com
