Phil Ivey is off to a red-hot start here in the $100,000 Challenge!
In a recent hand, Ben Tollerene raised to 900 from the cutoff and Ivey responded by three-betting to 3,000 from the button. The blinds both folded, Tollerene called, and it was heads-up action to the flop. Tollerene check-called a bet of 4,000 and then checked for a second time on the turn.
Ivey bet 11,000, Tollerene called, and the completed the board on the river. Tollerene check yet again and Ivey tossed out a hefty bet of 25,000. Tollerene took his time, and as the shot clock neared its expiration he tossed in a single chip to indicate a call.
Ivey tabled the for a well-disguised straight, and Tollerene sent his hand to the muck.
