Ivey Takes a Hit

We returned to the fabled table #4 to find a growing pot between Phil Ivey and Kirill Kruglov. We weren't able to catch what happened preflop, but what we do know is that on a {K-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop Kruglov bet out 1,800 from the big blind. The under the gun Ivey made the call, and both players got to see the turn.

With a {5-Clubs} landing on the turn we had a repeat of action when Kruglov bet out, this time 3,600. Ivey took a few moments and made the call. A river {A-Diamonds} allowed for a 7,200 bet from Kruglov. This time Ivey went into the tank pondering what his opponent might have. Three minutes of Ivey measuring out chips and sizing up his opponent went by before he threw out a call. Kruglov flipped over {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts} for a set of aces and Ivey stoically mucked his whole cards.
