Phil Ivey opened to 4,800 from the hijack seat and found two callers in the shape of Jerry Payne on the button and Brian Horwitz in the big blind.
The trio of players watched on as the dealer spread the flop, a flop that was checked to Ivey. He then bet 7,000 and both of his opponents folded.
Ivey is still in the hunt for what would be his first hold'em bracelet. Ivey has nine bracelets, all are from non-hold'em events: Will that change this week?
