Timex Lays It Down for Ivey

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 10,000 ante

Mike McDonald opened with a raise and Phil Ivey called to see a flop of {j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, which they both checked. When the dealer burned and turned a {2-}, Ivey bet 325,000, McDonald called, and the {7-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. This time Ivey fired out 500,000, and it did the trick as McDonald folded his hand.

Daniel Negreanu Eliminated in 4th Place (AU$1,250,000)

Daniel Negreanu - 4th Place
Daniel Negreanu - 4th Place

From the small blind, Daniel Negreanu raised all in. Phil Ivey made the quick call from the big blind with the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}, and he was dominating the {A-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for the at-risk Negreanu.

The flop vaulted Negreanu into the lead when the {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Spades} fell. The turn did give Ivey some more outs to now come from behind when the {J-Spades} fell, and then the {K-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Ivey finished with a better pair — a pair of kings — and Negreanu was eliminated in fourth place for AU$1,250,000. With Negreanu being in this event for three bullets worth a total of AU$750,000, he profited AU$500,000.

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 10,000 ante

Mike McDonald opened for 325,000 from the small blind and Isaac Haxton defended from the big. When the flop came down {3-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, McDonald bet 300,000, Haxton raised to 725,000, and McDonald took his time before making the call.

After the dealer burned and turned the {4-Spades}, McDonald checked, and Haxton moved all in. McDonald folded and Haxton was pushed the pot.

Haxton Snaps Off a Double with Two Aces

donpeters • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 10,000 ante

The flop, turn, and river ran out {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{7-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, and Haxton doubled up.

Haxton Doubles Through Ivey

Chad_Holloway • Level 17: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Isaac Haxton moved all in from the button for 895,000, Daniel Negreanu folded the small blind, and after thinking for a bit, Phil Ivey called from the big.

Haxton: {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Ivey: {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Haxton was ahead, but Ivey was drawing to two live cards. The {j-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop was interesting as it gave both players a little something. Haxton picked up a flush draw, while Ivey found an open-ended straight draw. The {3-Hearts} turn was of no consequence, and the {8-Clubs} river actually improved Haxton to a flush to give him the double.
