WSOP Tournament of Champions

Ivey Up Again

Phil Ivey opened for 525 in the hijack and Chris Ferguson re-popped for 1,700 total in the big blind. Ivey called, and they saw some community cards.

The flop came down {3-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Ferguson bet out 2,200. Ivey called. They saw a turn and a river - {5-Hearts}[ and {3-Spades} respectively - but checked them down. Ferguson tabled {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} for ace high, but Ivey's {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} was good to take the pot.

From short stack to 33,000 in just a few hands. It's good to be Phil Ivey. Ferguson meanwhile dropped a little to 25,700.
