Ivey Crippled, But Fighting Back



Phil Ivey has been moved over to the Orange Section of the Amazon Room where he is seated with John Monnette, the man he is racing with for 2012 World Series of Poker Player of the Year.

On a recent hand, Ivey fired a bet on seventh street with two pair, kings and eights. An opponent called with trip sixes and won the pot to crippled Ivey all the way down to 300 in chips.

On the next hand, Ivey made a pair of aces against an opponent's pair of threes to double up and then the game switched over Omaha.


On the first Omaha hand, Ivey's {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs} chopped the pot with Jimmy Fricke's {Q-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts} on the {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}{A-Clubs} board to get him a few more chips and he was hovering around the 2,000-chip mark.

Follow that, Ivey made queens and sevens on a board of {Q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} with the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Spades} against his opponent's {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} to take the half of another pot. That moved him over the 3,000-chip mark and up to 3,300.
