Ivey Active

Phil Ivey


Phil Ivey was very active in the lastest round of Omaha H/L. He doubled up short-stacked Alexander Kravchenko when Kravchenko raised all in with {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Ivey called from the big blind with {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, but couldn't come out ahead when the board fell {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}.

Still, Ivey has added about 100,000 to his stack since the break. In a hand against John Hennigan, Ivey raised from the cutoff and then called Hennigan's three-bet from the button.

The flop fell {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Ivey check-raised a Hennigan bet. Hennigan called to see the {3-Clubs} turn and proceeded to call Ivey's bet. However, he folded to Ivey's river bet after the {3-Hearts} fell.
