Ivey Doubles

On the {10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{K-Diamonds} board, Phil Ivey checked to John Andress. Andress fired 17,000 and Ivey put in a check-raise for all of his chips. Ivey's shove was worth 68,350 and it sent Andress into the tank for a bit. Eventually, he made the call holding the {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}. Ivey had the best of it with top and bottom pair. His hand was the {K-Clubs}{4-Clubs}.

The river completed the board with the {9-Diamonds} and that gave Ivey the double up. He boomed his way to about 145,000 after dropping a few recent hands in succession that had his stack going the wrong way. Andress was knocked down to 23,000.
