Flush Over Flush Sends Ivey Out the Door

Chad_Holloway • Level 8: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey got off to a hot start in this tournament, but he cooled off as things dragged on.

In what would be his last hand — at least on his first bullet — Ivey called from the button after Jeff Rossiter had raised from the hijack and Fedor Holz flatted the cutoff. Both blinds folded, the flop came down {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, and Rossiter led out for 14,500.

Holz folded, Ivey called, and the dealer burned and turned the {Q-Hearts}. Rossiter bet 32,000, Ivey called, and the {2-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Rossiter proceeded to move all in and Ivey wasted little time in dropping in his last 91,000. Rossiter rolled over the {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for a runner-runner flush, and Ivey flinched before showing a flush of his own, albeit an inferior one with the {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}.

Ivey didn't appear to be interested in reentering tonight, but something tells us he'll take another crack at it tomorrow.
