Aussie Millions Main Event

On to the Next One

When we arrived at the table, Phil Ivey was pitted in a hand against two other players and the first to act on the {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop. Ivey checked, as did the second player. The third player slid out a bet of 1,100 and Ivey called. The other player folded.

The turn card was the {10-Diamonds} and paired the board. Ivey checked and his opponent reached for chips right away. The player tossed out a yellow T5,000 chip and announced a bet of 2,500. Ivey made the call.

The river card completed the board with the {9-Spades} and Ivey checked again. His opponent didn't slow down and fired 7,000. Ivey grabbed the chips to make the call, thought about things for a few seconds and then tossed them in. His opponent then tabled the {J-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for a rivered gutshot straight and Ivey mucked his hand.

As the pot was being pushed to the player, Ivey turned towards PokerNews' reporter and said, "There's my lucky reporter," with a wry smile across his face.
