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

How Do They Find These Hands?

• Taso 22: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Phil Ivey is down to 170,000 in part to these two losses.

He raised to 40,000 on the button and Daniel Weinman called in the big blind. The flop was {K-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {4-Spades} and Weinman took 40,000 off Ivey when he check-raised to 120,000 and the great man folded.

Then a few hands later Ivey opened up to 40,000 in first position and Matt Marafioti three-bet to a smidgen over 100,000. Ivey folded and Marafioti showed {A-Hearts} {A-Spades}.

"Look at Phil," said Eslami, "he must be thinking how do these people get these hands so late in the tournament? He {Marafioti} has at least queens or aces once per orbit."
