Phil Ivey only lasted one hand at our mega table of death.
The aforementioned older woman, Theresa Gex, opened from under the gun and Ivey just grabbed his whole stack and stuck it in the middle. Chris "Jesus" Ferguson flatted and the action folded back to the kind woman who snapped it off.
Ivey tabled and Ferguson let out a laugh when he opened .
"You got me Phil," he joked.
Gex got them all though when she triumphantly turned over . The rail around the table was four people deep and they all exploded into uncontrollable laughter.
The board ran and Mr. Ivey hit the rail.
"Well," Ivey said with a huge grin. "It was fun while it lasted."
Ivey's out, Ferguson is down to 2,000 and the sweet old woman has tripled to 9,000.
If you've ever wanted a reason not to late register, look no further than Table 109. The table is composed of people who just signed up. It's no exaggeration when we say that it's by far the most stacked starting table we've seen in any $1,000 event.
Seat 2:Tommy Vedes
Seat 3: Dan Heimiller
Seat 5: Tom Dwan
Seat 6: Phil Ivey
Seat 8: Andy Black
Seat 9. Chris Ferguson
Squeezed in between Dwan and Ivey is an older woman with grey hair, Theresa Gex. Not the most comfortable place to be, but we'll see if she can prove doubters wrong.
Note: In the first hand we caught at the table, Chris Ferguson busted Dan Heimiller.
