Sean Troha Becomes a Two-Time WSOP PLO Champion, Robert Mizrachi Wins Number Five

3 min read

It’s hard to win even one World Series of Poker bracelet in a single year, let alone winning three in three years, but that’s what Sean Troha accomplished this week in Las Vegas. Also, Robert Mizrachi joins his brother Michael in the five-bracelet club by becoming a three-time WSOP champion.

Three in a row

It’s a trip, trip, triple for Ohio’s Sean Troha, who won his third WSOP bracelet in as many years. And he did it by again becoming a WSOP champion, this time in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. Besides his third bracelet, he won $536,713, pushing his WSOP booty over the $2 million mark.

Troha first become a WSOP Champ by taking down the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-handed Championship in 2021 for $1,246,770.

In between the two championship, he won a $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event in 2022 for $298,192.

The 2024 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship attracted 259, who built a prize pool of $2,408,700. The top 39 cashed and included Phil Ivey, Jesse Lonis, Scott Seiver, Alex Foxen, Viktor Bloom,  and Jeff Madsen.

Seiver also joined the five WSOP bracelet club with a win last week.

Troha also has two WSOP Circuit rings which he won within four days of each other at a 2014 Series in Chicago in October. The first was in a $580 Pot-Limit Omaha event, while the second was in a $1,125 no-limit hold’em contest.

He told a WSOP reporter that he plans on playing all the Pot-Limit Omaha he can this Series.

Five for Robert Mizrachi

Robert Mizrachi joined his brother, Michael, as a member of the five WSOP bracelet society after winning the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship for $333,045. It’s his third bracelet in events the WSOP labels as championships — $10,000 stud championship ($242,662) in 2017 and $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha championship ($768,889) in 2007 are the other two.

He also has two victories in $1,500 events: 2014 Dealer’s Choice for $147,092 and a Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better event in 2015 for $251,022.

He now has 98 cashes in WSOP events for more than $4.6 million. His lifetime poker tournament total is around $9.3 million.

And just like that, Robert is all caught up with his brother, Michael, who is a three-time $50,000 Players Champion (2010, 2012, 2018). Even though Michael has 10 less WSOP cashes to his name, he’s beating his younger brother by $5.1 million.

And Robert is over $8 million behind Michael in lifetime cashes. Another distinction: All but one of Michael’s WSOP victories were worth north of $1 million.

Michael’s fraternal twin, Eric, is still hunting for his first piece of WSOP hardware. Don’t sweat it, Eric, most of us are.
