Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Ivey Pressures Wooldridge to a Fold

With a final board of {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} laying in the middle of the table, Phil Ivey checked to Warren Wooldridge. Wooldridge slid out a bet of 8,000 with 15,300 in chips behind. Ivey leaned over slightly to get a look at Wooldridge's remaining stack and then check-raised enough to put the British player all in.

Wooldridge went into the tank and sat there for a minute or two into the break. Ivey didn't move. He just sat comfortably getting his massage while Wooldridge went back and forth in his head. Eventually, Wooldridge opted to fold and Ivey pulled in the pot before shooting off to break.

Hailing from London, England, Wooldridge is a British player with nearly $600,000 in live tournament earnings. His best World Series of Poker finish was a third-place result in a $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event last year. For that finish, Wooldridge earned just shy of $290,000. He had another third-place finish in 2006 at the WSOP coming in the $1,500 Limit Hold'em event for over $75,000. In total, Wooldridge has six WSOP cashes.
