Phil Ivey

Action folded to Phil Ivey on the button and he raised things up to 2,000. In the big blind was George Moussa and he called to see the flop come down {Q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Moussa checked and Ivey fired a continuation bet worth 2,500. Moussa check-raised all in and it was a fairly big shove worth 39,100. Ivey thought for a minute or two and then committed the chips for the call to put Moussa at risk.

Moussa tabled the {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a flush draw and straight draw. Ivey showed the best hand with the {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} for top pair, top kicker.

The turn was the {8-Spades} and kept Ivey in front. The river completed the board with the {6-Hearts} and Moussa spiked his flush to double up. He stormed away from the table in celebration and pumped his fists a few times. Ivey sent over the chips and slipped back to under 100,000 for the first time in a long while. Maybe he is human after all.
