Ivey Scores Elimination with Set Over Set

• Taso 3: 150-300, 0 ante
Phil Ivey

Picking up with the action on a {4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop, an early positioned player fired out a bet of 1,625. Phil Ivey was in the next seat over and came over the top for 5,000 total. His opponent wasted little time three-bet shipping all in for about 24,000. Ivey called and the hands were turned over.

Ivey: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Opponent: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Both players flopped sets with pocket pairs, but Ivey's top set of sixes was in the lead. The board completed with the {Q-Spades} and the {9-Hearts}, allowing Ivey's set to hold up as the best hand. He scooped the pot, scored the elimination, and now has 63,000 in chips.
