Sorel Mizzi Eliminated in 2nd Place (AU$1,000,000)
Ami Barer opened with a raise from the button and Sorel Mizzi announced that he was all in. Barer snap-called and Mizzi, who is the only player to make the final table of the Aussie Millions Main Event twice, discovered the bad news.
Mizzi had run smack dab into Barer's pocket rockets, but that didn't stop his supporters — which included Liv Boeree and Antonio Esfandiari — from calling for diamonds. "Shine bright like a diamond," they began to chant, though they were silenced when the flop came down .
Mizzi was left in needed of either running queens or eights, but the turn took away any chance of that happening. The inconsequential was put out on the river to give Barer a full house, and Mizzi has to settle for runner-up and a AU$1,000,000 consolation prize.
