Antonius Doubles Through Ivey . . . Again

On a flop of {2-Spades}{Q-Spades}{8-Spades}, Patrik Antonius checked and Phil Ivey bet 65,000. Tony Bloom got out of the way, Antonius moved all in for 458,500, and Ivey made the call.



Antonius had flopped bottom set to crack Ivey's kings, but the latter still held a flush draw. The railbirds were on their feet as the dealer burned and turned the {6-Hearts}, a blank as far as Ivey was concerned. The river cards was black, but it was the wrong suit as the {A-Clubs} made an appearance.

Antonius survived the hand for a bug double, while Ivey lost about half his chips on the hand.
