Ivey On Life Support

Phil Ivey

In one of the first hands of the day, Ryan Austin raised all in under the gun for his stack of 226,000. Action folded to Phil Ivey in the big blind and after cutting out his chips, he made the call. He was not happy to see his {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} was behind to Austin's {a-Spades}{10-Spades}.

The flop came {5-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Austin's kicker played leaving Ivey on the extreme short stack.

Just two hands later, Ivey doubled through Adam Sanders. Ivey with {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and Sanders holding {2-Hearts}{7-Clubs} saw the {5-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{j-Spades}{k-Clubs} giving Ivey the double up.
