Ivey fills wallet with online cash

Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey may have made two final tables during the 2007 World Series of Poker, but online is where he seems to be picking up better cash these days.

Ivey managed to collect more than $205,000 playing H.O.R.S.E. online at Full Tilt Poker this week, as well as another $512,000 playing Pot-Limit Omaha.

According to HighStakesReport.com, Phil Ivey sat down at a $1,000/$2,000 H.O.R.S.E. table July 11 with Chip Reese, Doyle Brunson, John Juanda, Eli Elezra and David Benyamine. More than 410 hands later, he was up $205,000.

Reese also had a successful turn at the table, walking away with $53,000. Of course that meant some of the players walked away a little lighter in the cash department.

Brunson lost $9,000, Juanda $24,000, and Elezra and Beyamine took the brunto of it losing $103,000 and $217,000 respectively.

On Thursday, Ivey took his game to Pot-Limit Hold'em where he saw even more success, according to HighStakesdb.com.

Playing in two different sessions, he accumulated around $512,000 in winnings. Some of which came from Ziigmund, a prominent online player.

One pot reached nearly $200,000 as the two butted heads. Ivey held 5s-Ks-4d-5c with the board coming 4s-5d-3c-9h-4c. He got an all-in from Ziigmund who then mucked his cards after Ivey showed the winning hand.
