Phil Ivey brought it in with a {j-} up, and the action folded to John Monnette, who completed with a {6-}. Having less than two big bets, Ivey raised, putting most of his stack at risk, and Monnette re-raised all in. Ivey called.

Ivey tabled {7-}{4-}, Monnette {9-}{2-}, and the boards ran out like this:

Ivey: ({7-}{4-}) / {j-}{j-}{7-}{3-} / {x-}
Monnette: ({9-}{2-}) / {6-}{10-}{q-}{3-} / {7-}

Ivey never flipped over his downcard, rather he left the mothership to go play in Event 35: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em.
