LAS VEGAS (AP) -Michael ``The Grinder'' Mizrachi has been eliminated from the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas after dropping from chip leader to short stack to a fifth place finish.

Mizrachi was beaten early Sunday after calling an all-in bet from 23-year-old Jonathan Duhamel after making a pair of queens with one of three community cards. Duhamel turned over two aces, the best starting hand in no-limit Texas Hold 'em.

The 29-year-old Mizrachi didn't improve his hand on the river and was ousted in fifth.

Mizrachi won $2.33 million but fell short of the $8.94 million title he sought as the final table's most famous face. A win in the main event would have capped off a special summer in which the Florida pro won the series' first of 57 open poker tournaments.
