Ivey Loses Some Ground

[user169806] • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey had built his stack to 87,000, but it's now down to 73,000 after losing a couple of pots.

The first saw Benton Blakeman open the preflop betting with a raise to 6,500 from the button and Ivey called from the big blind. Both players checked the all paint {j-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} flop, Ivey also checked the {Q-Hearts} turn. Blakeman had seen enough passive play and took a 5,500 chip stab at the pot. It worked and Ivey folded without much thought.

The second hand that cost Ivey some chips saw Ivey open from the hijack to 6,000, but then folded when Ahmed Amin three-bet from the small blind to 21,000. The infamous Ivey stare down almost happened, but he only did it for a couple of seconds before sending his hand back to the dealer.
