Ivey Gets That Shovey Feeling


From the button, Phil Ivey opened to 100,000, and the action came to Gus Hansen in the big blind. He stacked out a three-bet to 300,000, then added a single gray chip to the stack to make it 301,000 total. Ivey spent a couple minutes in the tank, then four-bet shoved over the top with the covering stack.

That sent Hansen awfully deep into the tank, and it would be a good four or five long minutes before he acted. All the while, he was mumbling to himself and scrunching his face up, trying to sort out what was what. At one point, he even turned around to grab a bottle of water and take a leisurely sip, enough to get Ivey a little shifty in his chair.

The fold came, though, and Hansen has dropped back under a million chips.
