Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

What if Ivey Shoves?

[user101598] • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey and Kearns Julien checked to Cong Pham on a board of {7-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}, and Pham tossed out a bet of 38,500. Ivey quickly called, and Julien tanked for several minutes before calling the clock on himself. He eventually slid his hand into the muck, and the dealer burned one last card before delivering the {4-Clubs} on the river.

Ivey checked, Pham checked behind, and Ivey said he missed. Pham showed {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a pair of nines, and was awarded the pot.

"I didn't want another diamond," Pham told Ivey, who nodded.

"What do you do if I shove in on the turn?" Ivey asked Pham, who laughed.

"I don't know."
