Brutal Turn Sends Ivey to the Rail

gqzdaddy • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante
Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey opened for 8,000 from under the gun and Anton Smirnov called from the small blind. The flop was {k-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades} and Smirnov checked. Ivey bet 8,000 and Smirnov made the call. The turn was the {10-Spades} and again Smirnov checked. Ivey fired 20,000 and Smirnov called.

The river was the {2-Diamonds} and Smirnov checked to Ivey for a thrid time. Ivey stacked his last 46,000 and pushed it toward the pot. Smirnov called and Ivey turned over {6-Clubs}{6-Spades} for a set, but it wasn't good enough as Smirnov tabled {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} for a higher set.

Ivey's deep run has come to an end and the nine-time bracelet winner is still searching for that elusive first WSOP hold'em victory.
