Phil Ivey - 8th Place

No-Limit Hold'em

After folding for three hands after getting crippled, Phil Ivey stuck his last 7,000 in from under the gun. Action folded to Michael Gathy on the button and he called. Joep van den Bijgaart called from the small blind and Erik Cajelais checked from the big blind.

The three active players in the hand checked down the board as it ran out {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} before getting to a showdown.

"I looked at an ace," announced Ivey as the players started turning over their hands.

Gathy showed the {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a pair of sevens, van den Bijgaart the {4-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Cajelais showed the {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for two pair and then Ivey had the {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Ivey did have an ace, but the three that came with it wasn't what he needed to stay alive and he was eliminated in eighth place.

Ivey was quickly out the door and we'll surely see him soon in another event at the World Series of Poker.
