Ivey Not Alivey

Scott "Mayhem" Einigier limped in and Phil Ivey called on the button, leaving himself 1,000 behind. The blinds got involved too, and they saw an {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop. It checked around to Ivey who went all in for 1,000, and the gent in the small blind made the call, as did the big blind, but Einigier raised to 7,000. Mr. Small Blind folded, but Mr. Big Blind made the call.

They saw a {k-Clubs} turn and the big blind checked, before calling another 7,000 from Einigier.

The river was the {5-Clubs}. The big blind now checked again, and this time Einigier went all in. The big blind finally folded, and it was just Einigier and Ivey to showdown. Einigier tabled {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} for a full house and Ivey just mucked. He headed for the door, chased by TV cameras as he went.
