Phil Ivey Doubles Up

Frank Koopmann raised to 1,200 in the cutoff and Phil Ivey three-bet to 3,800 on the button. Koopman made the call and the pair headed to the flop.

Flop: {8-Spades} {5-Spades} {2-Hearts}

Koopman checked, Ivy bet 5,000 and Koopman called.

Turn: {8-Diamonds}


River: {K-Diamonds}

Koopman checked for a third time and Ivey bet another 5,000. Back to Koopman and he put Ivey all-in, for a smidgen more, and Ivey made the call.

Ivey{A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs}
Koopman{6-Hearts} {6-Clubs}

So Ivey got there on the river and scooped in the pot worth 45,000. Koopman was down to 26,000.
