Phil Ivey

Shaun Deeb opened to 60,000 from middle position, and Phil Ivey reraised to 165,000 across the table. Deeb asked how much he was playing, and Ivey rearranged his stacks to reveal all 390,000 he had behind. After another pause, Deeb announced, "Pot," and Ivey quickly moved all in for 555,000 total. Deeb was working with a small pocket pair and hoping to be in a race. He was not.

Showdown
Deeb: {4-Clubs} {4-Spades}
Ivey: {A-Diamonds} {A-Spades}

Ivey had found his spot, and Deeb had more than half his chips in jeopardy. The board ran out clean, coming {5-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {J-Spades} {Q-Clubs}.

Um, look out! Phil Ivey has the chip lead with more than 1.1 million. And he's got that look in his eye...
