Last night was a very epic one in terms of poker with both Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth in contention for a bracelet. Ivey wound up coming second to Andy Frankenberger, while Hellmuth went on to win his 12th gold bracelet. What does that mean? Well, Ivey's right back to work here tonight while Hellmuth may be taking some time off to celebrate.
On this hand, action folded to Ivey in the small blind and he raised. The big blind reraised and Ivey called. The flop came down and Ivey check-raised his opponent. The player called.
On the turn that paired the board, Ivey check-called a bet from his opponent. He then check-called the on the river.
The big blind tabled the for aces full of eights and won the pot. Ivey mucked his hand and dropped back to 10,000 in chips.
