Phil Ivey Makes Mind-Boggling Play At No-Limit Deuce-To-Seven Triple Draw
Opponent Stands Pat Three Times, And Ivey Shoves With Q-7-5-3-2
On Tuesday on Full Tilt Poker, there was an highly volatile session of no-limit deuce-to-seven triple draw featuring some of the game’s most aggressive players. Phil Ivey was one of the big losers in the game, partly thanks to an astonishing maneuver against unknown “patpatpanda”.
The hand began with Phil Galfond raising to $1,050 from the cutoff. Patpatpanda raised to $3,750 from the small blind. Ivey called from the big blind. Galfond folded.
Patpatpanda stood pat, and Ivey drew two.
After the draw Ivey was faced with a $7,650 bet, and he called.
Patpatpanda stood pat again, and Ivey took one.
Ivey elected to raise his opponent’s $18,600 bet to $51,000. Patpatpanda called.
Both players stood pat, and patpatpanda checked this time to the eight-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner. Ivey put his opponent all in for $123,805.
Patpatpanda called with 7 6 4 3 2, and was good against Q 7 5 3 2.
In deuce-to-seven, Patpatpanda’s hand is considered No. 2, or the second nuts.
The losses have resulted in Ivey being a nearly $1-million loser over the past week, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. He’s now down about $500,000 on 2013.
