It was at the conclusion of a Stud Eight-or-Better hand that Phil Ivey would sit behind a very small chip stack. It was between Ivey and the short-at-the-time David Bakes Baker.
Ivey: / /
Baker: / /
Both players committed bets on the first round of betting, then on fourth, Baker led and Ivey called. Fifth street would see Ivey lead and Baker raise it up, leaving himself with little behind. Ivey made the call and then on sixth street, put in the bet to see Baker all-in.
By the time seventh was dealt out, Baker had his hole cards on the table, enough for the low and the high, sending Ivey's cards into the muck.
