2024 WSOP $25K Fantasy Hands of the Week: Three-Way All-In Ousts Ivey from $25,000 High Roller

Phil Ivey

The $25K Fantasy league is starting to see some separation as Team The Dinkers (Josh Kay) has opened up a nice lead of 478 points, which is a good bit ahead of both Team Sternheimer (330 points) and Team Oz (251 points). Of the 19 teams, six have failed to cross the 100-point mark, while Team Chingas (19 points) and Team Lucky (17 point) at the bottom of the pack.

PokerNews has been tracking $25K Fantasy players in our live updates and has even made it simple to follow the action by tagging all players with a $25K Fantasy badge. That allows you to utilize our chip count filter option to follow only those players (just tick the $25K Fantasy badge); what’s more, each blog will have a “$25K Fantasy” tab that if you click all you will see are hands played by $25K Fantasy players.

Check out this video to see how it all works:

As a result, we can capture some of the biggest, best, and most game-changing hands involving the $25K Fantasy roster. Here are five from the last week of action in the 2024 WSOP.

On Day 2 of Event #21: $25,000 High Roller Six-Handed NLH, it was Level 11 (6,000/12,000/12,000) when reporter Connor Richards saw Yulian Bogdanov put out a stack of green 25,000-chips on the button and the small blind called off for around 140,000 as Phil Ivey went into the tank in the big blind. Ivey mulled a decision over a minute before putting in his stack of around 120,000.

Phil Ivey: 66
Small Blind: AK
Yulian Bogdanov: Q10

Ivey was the only player with a pair but the Poker Hall of Famer couldn't stay ahead as the board ran out Q31032 to earn Bogdanov a double knockout.

On Day 1 of the same tournament, it was Level 7 (3,000/5,000/5,000) when Connor Richards witnessed noted rivals Daniel Negreanu and Justin Bonomo, who haven't shied away from expressing their different political viewpoints on social media, were seated side-by-side. Before long, the short-stacked Negreanu found himself all in for around 35,000 in a blind-versus-blind confrontation.

Daniel Negreanu: Q9
Justin Bonomo: 87

The board ran out 9K7K2 to earn Negreanu a small double. The two did not exchange words and the table broke shortly after.

On Day 2 of the $25K High Roller, it was Level 16 (20,000/40,000/40,000) when reporter Will Shillibier caught a big one on the last hand before the three-table redraw. Kevin Rabichow opened to 80,000 from under the gun and Stoyan Madanzhiev three-bet to 240,000. Alex Foxen was in the big blind and four-bet to 575,000.

Rabichow folded before Madanzhiev verbally announced a five-bet to 1,175,000. Foxen used a time bank before moving all in for 2,675,000 with Madanzhiev calling.

Alex Foxen: A5
Stoyan Madanzhiev: AK

There was a murmur as Foxen showed his hole cards, and he failed to overcome the ace-king of Madanzhiev on the 1086JK runout. Foxen was eliminated in 18th place for $64,429.
