Ivey Doesn't Find Soft Metaal


Phil Ivey's stack is in the red for the first time today after he called a river bet from Govert Metaal which was bad.

Ivey opened from mid position and Metaal peeled from the big blind to see a {7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} flop where he check-called a 1,000 c-bet. Both players checked the {9-Hearts} turn before the Dutchman led for 2,500 on the {5-Spades} river.

Ivey took his time and threw in the calling chips. Metaal opened {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a flush and Ivet mucked.
