Tenenbaum Takes Out Ivey

Phil Ivey

Having lost most of his short stack in a previous hand, Phil Ivey found himself all in and up against two opponents, including Yoav Tenenbaum sitting to his left.

There was about 18,000 in the middle when the flop came {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. The early position player checked, Tenenbaum quickly bet 11,000, and his opponent called. The turn was the {5-Diamonds}, and when it checked to Tenebaum he immediately announced he was all in, sending his opponent deep into the tank. Finally, after a couple of minutes he folded, and Tenenbaum and Ivey tabled their hands.

Tenenbaum: {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Ivey: {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Tenenbaum leaned over and held out a hand to shake Ivey's, but Ivey wasn't ready to do so quite yet, pointing out he could still survive should a four come on the river. Alas for Ivey, the river brought the {8-Spades}. "Now I'll shake your hand," said Ivey with a grin, and after doing so he departed with yet another WSOP cash.
