We think this is a WSOP first. Right now, Phil Ivey is playing not one, not two but THREE WSOP bracelet events simultaneously!
It's an incredible effort, which all started yesterday when he entered both the $2.5k PL HE/O and the $5k 6-handed NLHE events.
Switching between the two Ivey managed to stay in contention in both, making day two in each of them.
You would have thought Ivey would have had his hands full just with that, but the man has powers the rest of us can only dream of.
He decided that two simultaneous tournaments just didn't cut it and entered the $10k Heads-Up Championship today as well!
It proved a smart move as he wasted no time dusting off "Player of the Year" candidate Mike Mizrachi in just two hands, 5-bet shipping A-J and getting there versus Mizrachi's pocket nines.
With 72 left he's amongst the chip leaders in the $5k 6-max whilst at present he is neglecting the $2.5K PLHE/O mixed event and has slipped to near the bottom of the chip rankings.
Can Ivey win three bracelets at the same time? We certainly wouldn't bet against him.
What do you think?
