Ivey Climbs the Counts

Phil Ivey runs like Phil Ivey.

We arrived at the table just in time to see Phil Ivey make an important decision. He was heads up at the turn with a {8-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {8-Spades} {10-Diamonds} board. Ivey checked, his opponent bet 3,500 and Ivey took his time to raise to 7,000.

His opponent counted all his chips, pulled back his 3,500 bet and moved all in for 13,650. Ivey called and tabled {A-Clubs} {K-Spades}.

His opponent tabled {10-Spades} {10-Clubs} and stood up from the table, hoping to celebrate his double up. But the poker gods and the dealer had different plans; the river came {K-Diamonds} and Ivey stacked his opponent.
