Michael Mizrachi aka The Grinder is taking on the role of online poker operator and opening up his own Bitcoin poker room called Get Lucky Poker. He states that the lack of good sponsorship opportunities helped him make his decision and when talking in a recent Calvin Ayre interview he said that, “I have decided to make my own luck. I am opening my own online poker site. We will have a few pros on there. It will be called Get Lucky Poker.com and we will be using bitcoins. Hopefully, that works. We will have Badeci, Badugi, Deuce to Seven, as many games as we can get up on there. Hopefully, it will be up before the beginning of January and it’s going to be exciting.” Word is that Mike Matusow will be one of those pro’s he mentioned.

Mizrachi has 3 WSOP bracelets to his name and 13 final table appearances, along with 35 money finishes and 2 WPT titles. His hard to beat solid style of play earned him his Grinder nickname and the $6,931,580 in WSOP winnings, and over $14 Million in total tournament winnings proves that his particular style works, and works well. Get Lucky Poker is in testing at the moment, and has been for sometime, and it’s a let’s wait and see if that launch comes in January.
