Ivey Busts Gaudio at the Mothership

BrettC • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Phil Ivey

After a slow start at the ESPN feature table in which Phil Ivey didn't win a hand during the first orbit, Ivey is trending up again after eliminating Robert Gaudio.

Gaudio opened to 8,000 from the button and Ivey three-bet from the small blind. Jin Wang released from the big blind and Gaudio moved all in for 127,500. Ivey snap-called and the cards were tabled.

Gaudio: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Ivey: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The {6-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Spades} flop increased Ivey’s lead as he added a flush draw. The {3-Diamonds} on the turn changed nothing, and the {K-Spades} on the river completed Ivey’s flush to send Gaudio to the rail short of the money.
