Ivey Has It

Phil Ivey

In middle position, Phil Ivey opened to 7,500, and the gentleman on the button three-bet shoved for his last 70,500. The {A-Spades} {A-Hearts} quietly appeared face-up in front of Ivey's stack, and Mr. Opponent said, "I think you got it." He rolled over his {K-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}, and he needed some help in a hurry to stay alive.

There was none. The board ran {4-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {2-Spades} {A-Clubs} {3-Spades}, and the set of aces give Ivey the knockout. With it comes another chip increase, and this one pushes him up over the half-million-chip mark and back onto the tail of the chip leader.
