Ivey Picks Up Aces in First Hand to Eliminate Kane

Chad_Holloway • Level 15: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

It didn't take long for the first elimination of the day. On the very first hand Phil Ivey has eliminated Michael Kane.

It happened when Ivey opened for 11,000 from the hijack and action folded to Kane in the big blind. He opted for a three-bet to 24,000, Ivey four-bet to 55,000 and Kane moved all in for 159,000. Ivey snap-called and the cards were turned up:

Ivey: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Kane: {A-}{K-Spades}

Kane looked devastated and he looked on helplessly as the board ran out {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}. With that, Kane became the day's first casualty while Ivey got an immediate boost to his stack.
