Robert Mizrachi (often known as Robbie) is an American professional poker player. He started off as a poker dealer in a South Miami Casino and he taught the game to his brother Michael Mizrachi who is a top world renowned professional poker player (even more successful than Robert), to Michael's fraternal twin Eric and to their youngest brother Daniel who is a professional magician. Poker was in their family even earlier when their mother taught the game to Robert, the four boys would go off to bed while their mother was playing cards downstairs with her friends – but they didn't really go to bed, they were upstairs playing their own card games and they even wrote down who owed who what!! Their mother still has the pieces of paper to prove it.
Coming 7th place in 2000 at the Carnival of Poker and then 7th place again in 2002 at the Grand Slam of Poker Tournament, Robert Mizrachi got his first real boost of confidence in 2003 when he finished second in a No Limit Hold'em event at the Showdown at the Sands for $24K. All that money gave him the push he needed to continue on this poker path of success. In 2004 he won $482K at the Master Classics of Poker in Amsterdam. His success continued in 2007 as he continued travelling around the world when he finished fourth with $409K in the $78000 World Poker Tour Poker Stars Caribbean Adventure.
2007 was a big year for Robert Mizrachi when he won a bracelet (not the only Mizrachi brother to do so) at the World Series of Poker and out of six cashes that year; three of them were at final tables. The PLO tournament was particularly impressive with the famous poker stars who participated including Patrik Antonius, Marco Traniello, Tommy Ly, Steven Sung and Doyle Brunson.
2008 was also a good year for him when he finished 13th with $130K in the $25,000 No Limit Hold'em Championship Event of the Sixth Annual Five Star World Poker Classic – WPT World Championships, Las Vegas.
In 2009 Robert Mizrachi aka "who's bad" made quite a stir at the UB.com Aruba Poker Classic where he finished second place with $414K.
In November 2010 the Mizrachi family put on quite a performance at the November Nine when Michael Mizrachi (who is younger than Robert) won the highly esteemed $50,000 Players Championship title, knocking out his brother Robert Mizrachi along the way – now that's entertainment!
Robert Mizrachi spends a lot of his time travelling around the world playing at poker tournaments including the High Rollers Event at the Marrakesh Poker Cup in Morocco in September where he received $185,250 and his live earnings exceed $3,900,000 but when he isn't travelling he can be found playing online poker at Full Tilt Poker where he plays as a sponsored pro under the username Robert Mizrachi. He is also very successful at online tournaments and just as entertaining virtually as he is in real life.
