Ivey and Lamb Butt Heads

Phil Ivey

From the hijack seat, Antonio Esfandiari raised to 38,000. Ben Lamb called on the button and Phil Ivey called from the big blind.

The flop came down {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and Ivey checked. Esfandiari bet 52,000 and Lamb called. Ivey also called.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and Ivey checked. Esfandiari checked and then Lamb bet 185,000. Only Ivey called to see the river.

The {3-Spades} completed the board and Ivey checked. Lamb fired 750,000 and Ivey thought for a little. He asked how much the bet was for and then thought a little bit longer. Ivey eventually folded and Lamb won the pot.

"I meant to make it 650,000," said Lamb after Ivey folded. Either way, he won the pot.
