Nikolai Yakovenko {x-}{x-} / {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades} / {x-}

Brunson brought it in, Ivey called, and Yakovenko raised. Brunson released, and Ivey called all in, turning over {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. Yakovenko opened up {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, and had a low by sixth street. When Yakovenko turned over the {10-Clubs} on seventh, all Ivey needed to do was pair.

He did. The {8-Hearts} was good enough for half the pot, earning him half of the antes and the bring in.

Ivey is visably frustrated at the table, and can't get anything going.
