River King Saves Ivey


Three players were all in before flop, including Stewart Spear (cutoff), Phil Ivey (small blind), and the player on the button who had both covered. Spear had {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}, Ivey {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, and the third player {A-Spades}{7-Spades}.

The flop came {J-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, giving both of Ivey's opponents pairs. The turn was the {6-Spades}. The river then brought the {K-Hearts}, at the sight of which Spear initially pushed his hand forward, thinking for a moment two pair might be best. Then he saw Ivey had made Broadway, sending Spear out in 286th place and ensuring the eight-time bracelet winner had survived.
