O'Kearney Can't Hang On

[user249920]

Blinds: 10,000/20,000/2,500

All in from the big blind for 4,700, Dara "OriginalDoke" O'Kearney had {j-}{2-} and was up against {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. The {j-}{2-}{5-} flop was beautiful for O'Kearney but the {5-} on the turn was a brutal blow, resulting in a bubble elimination.

The remaining players are all in the money.

WSOP Legend: 10-Time Bracelet Winner Phil Ivey

Few poker players have captured the attention of the poker universe quite like Phil Ivey. There have been plenty of champions of the game who crushed it at the felt, but none who built up the mystique of Ivey, who remains to this day arguably the most magnetic player in poker despite results that no longer match his days of utmost dominance.

A day after the anniversary of Ivey's induction into the Poker Hall of Fame, PokerNews examines the legacy of his WSOP success. Prior to 2000, Ivey didn't have any recorded WSOP cashes.

The 23-year-old didn't waste any time establishing himself as one of the top up-and-coming players. That year, after already making one final table and finishing fifth, Ivey secured his first bracelet. He beat none other than fellow Hall of Famer Amarillo Slim Preston heads up to win Event #14: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, a rebuy event, for his first bracelet and $195,000. Three other Hall of Famers — Chris Bjorin, Phil Hellmuth and David "Devilfish" Ulliott — also competed at that final table, so shipping it was about more than just getting his first taste of gold. Ivey showed he could beat the best in the business.

Two years after that, though, would be when Ivey really showed he was the present and future of the game. In 2002, Ivey showcased his skills at limit poker in a big way.

"Easterdamnz" Wrecked on Flop

[user249920]

Blinds: 10,000/20,000/2,500

Michiel "Easterdamnz" Van Elsacker got his stack of about 140K in with {j-}{j-} and was dominating an opponent's {k-}{j-}. That flipped in a major way when two kings flopped, leaving Van Elsacker drawing dead instantly.
