Phil Ivey Wins His 10th WSOP Bracelet in Event #50: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix

Posted at 10:00 2014-06-30 by PokerNetwork Staff

Phil Ivey claimed his 10th World Series of Poker bracelet in Event #50: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix tournament.

485 players payed the $1,500 entry fee to this historic 3 day event, but only 106 remained after the first 10 levels of play. Once Day 2 was in the books, we had our final 14 players, with names like Stephen Chidwick, Amnon Filippi, Dan Heimiller and Daniel Negreanu amoing them, all hoping to catch this prestigious title.

But in the end it was the best of the best, Phil Ivey, who emerged victorious, catching up to Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan with 10 bracelets.

Ivey found himself playing heads-up with Bruce Yamron from a small disadvantage, but taking the lead quite quickly. On the final hand, which was played in Omaha 8, Bruce Yamron raised on the button. Phil Ivey called from the big blind and the flop fell {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Ivey led out, Yamron raised and Ivey called to see the {k-Diamonds} turn. Ivey fired again, Yamron raised all in for 150,000 and Ivey called.

Yamron: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Ivey: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Both players had two pair, but Ivey had the better of it with aces and kings to Yamron's aces and sevens. Yamron had outs for a low, too, but the {q-Diamonds} river was no help, ending his run in second place for $103,375.
