Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud

Ivey and the Nuts

• Taso 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Let's be honest: When does Phil Ivey not have the nuts or something close to it?

We picked Mr. Ivey up in a heads-up pot with a player whose name escapes us.

Ivey: (x-x) / {K-Hearts} {J-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} / (x)
Opponent: (x-x) / {3-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} / (x)

Mr. Opponent was betting his lead all the way through sixth with Ivey paying off each bet. On seventh, though, Ivey was the one to get a bet in, and the opponent check-called.

Ivey tabled {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {10-Spades}, and that's plenty good. Broadway earns him the pot, and he's moved back up to about 13,000 or so.

Tagit: Phil Ivey
