Koon Takes One From Ivey

Phil Ivey and Jason Koon

Jason Koon and Phil Ivey have been sitting next to each other for the better part of day 2, but so far we are still waiting for their first big clash. Just now we were hoping to see some fireworks when there was a raise from early position and three players called among which Koon and Ivey from the cut-off and button.

The flop came down {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and all players checked. On the turn, the {9-Diamonds}, the same thing happened and the river was the {J-Clubs}. It got checked all the way around to Jason Koon who bet 26,500 from the button. Everyone folded to Ivey who tanked for a bit and flicked into the pot. Koon tabled {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and Ivey mucked his cards.

It wasn't the firework we were hoping for, but it's a start. Ivey and Koon could still play the first million chip pot even though both players have found a good way of accumulating chips without risking too much.

Chip stacks
Jason Koon us 575,000 125,000
Phil Ivey us 480,000 -35,000
