Robert Mizrachi on Monday captured his fourth World Series of Poker bracelet by winning the $10,000 buy-in Seven-Card Stud Championship at the Rio Convention Center.

In doing so, Robert not just went past his more famous brother Michael but entered a select group of players - Amarillo Slim, Huck Seed, Mike Matusow among others - to with four bracelets.

The event had 87 players participating in it. Some of the most notable players, including Chris Ferguson, were in the fray for the $817,800 prize pool.

This is the Miami native's third bracelet in as many years at the biggest event in the poker world.

The 37-year-old edged out Chicago's Matt Grapenthien in the heads-up battle, walking away with a cool $242,662.

The duo commanded close to 60% of the chips in play when the game resume on Monday afternoon. Interestingly, Grapenthien won this event in 2014. This time though he had to settle for a second place finish for $149,976. 

Robert's latest triumph seals his position as one of the best mixed-game players in the world. His first WSOP bracelet arrived in 2007 at pot-limit Omaha. After a brief spell of failed bids, the oldest of the Mizrachi brothers won the $1,500 buy-in Omaha High-Low 8-or-Better tournament and $1,500 buy-in Dealer’s Choice Six-Handed event in 2015 and 2015 respectively.

His fourth WSOP bracelet helped take Rob's WSOP earnings to $2.4 million.
