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

Deeb Drags a Double

Shaun Deeb opened the pot with a hijack raise, and Phil Ivey three-bet from the small blind. Deeb got the last 270,000 of his chips into the middle without delay, and the cards were on their backs.

Deeb: {9-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}
Ivey: {A-} {Q-}

The {6-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {4-Hearts} flop put Deeb two cards from the exit, and the {2-Spades} turn was a blank, too. The river was not a blank. The {10-Hearts} dropped off the deck to save Deeb's tournament life. Ivey is forced to grant a double to drop back under a million, while Deeb crawls out of the cellar and doubles back to 570,000.

Phil Ivey us 915,000 -270,000
Shaun Deeb us 570,000 240,000
