Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Ivey Chops and Then Loses

• Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Phil Ivey just raised to 5,100 and the player in the big blind defended. The flop came down {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Ivey's opponent check-called 7,500.

On the turn the {A-Hearts} hit and the big blind checked again after which Ivey bet 17,500. Ivey's opponent called and both players checked on the river when the {J-Diamonds} popped up.

The big blind showed {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and Ivey tabled {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}, as both players played the board.

The pot was chopped, but a little while later a colleague brought to our attention that Ivey had lost a big pot versus a set of kings. This pot knocked Ivey back down to 410,000, but he's still among the bigger stacks in the room.
