Ivey fills wallet with online cash
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.
