Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Both Ivey & Puchkov Put Their Tournament Lives on the Line


We're not sure of the preflop action, but we do know that both Konstantin Puchkov and Phil Ivey were at risk against Denis Biscaldi. Puchkov was all in for 9,300, while Ivey had a more considerable stack of 59,500 on the line.

Puchkov: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Biscaldi: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Ivey: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

Biscaldi wasn't happy about his position, but neither he nor Ivey seemed upset that the {A-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop gave Puchkov the lead as they were more concerned with the side pot. The {3-Hearts} turn and {Q-Clubs} saw that side pot go to Ivey, while Puckov tripled off the main pot.
