Heads-up at Caesar’s Circuit Event

There’s quite a heads-up battle going on right now between Justin Bonomo and the Grinder, Michael Mizrachi. Blogger Jon Katkin is on the rail and sends along these iPhone pics of the action:

Most recently: Bonomo’s won a couple monster pots and it could be over soon.

    It took a few hours, but Bonomo did take down the Circuit event and the $10k Main Event seat plus $1k for expenses.

    About a $230k first prize? That’s gotta provide some nice WSOP buy-in assurance. Will be like Bonomo (and the Grinder — $140ish for second?) is on a freeroll through the WSOP.

    Makes him/them dangerous and ones to watch, I’d think.

    It was an epic battle and I was really hoping Mike could win it, after all he wore my logo hat the first two days of the event.

    However in the end the cards turned and Justin was able to win the ring, congratulations Justin.

    This was a nice tune up and confidence builder for both of them going into this year’s WSOP. I know Mike is bound and determined to be able to claim a bracelet this year. He came close last year and he is playing good Poker. He won the scoop event last month and outlasted a decent field of 187 players at Caesar’s.

    As long as Mike does not play to many events and exhaust himself trying to win a bracelet, I think he has a great opportunity to bring one home this year.
