Phil Ivey Wins 10th Bracelet in Event #50: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix

Phil Ivey Event #50 WSOP 2014
Share this

Phil Ivey put the poker in the number TEN when he won his 10th World Series of Poker gold bracelet as the WSOP celebrates 10 years of hosting in the halls of the Rio All Suite and Casino! Event #50: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix started with 485 players and Ivey walked away with the title and $167,332 in first-place prize money after defeating Bruce Yamron heads-up. With this feat in the books Ivey climbed up the ranks of elite gold bracelet holders to tie fellow 10-time winners Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan.

Final Table Payouts

1Phil Ivey$167,332
2Bruce Yamron$103,375
3Dan Heimiller$66,246
4Aaron Steury$44,286
5Stephen Chidwick$30,488
6Yuebin Guo$21,692
7Christoph Haller$15,720

With 14 players returning in hopes of winning this event, Ivey started the day third in chips and seemed to never stop collecting more as players like Devin Looney, Christian Pereira, Yehuda Buchalter, Amnon Filippi, and Abdel Hamid all were sent to the rail during the beginning of the day. Six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu was gone in ninth place, which started the re-draw for the unofficial final table of eight — Ivey was chip leader at this point.

When Dan Heimiller was eliminated in third-place, the only object standing between Phil Ivey and bracelet number 10 — and all those fabulous WSOP prop bets — was Bruce Yamron.

The final hand came down in Omaha-8, with Bruce Yamron button raising. Phil Ivey called to see a flop of {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Ivey bet, Yamron raised, and Ivey called to see the {K-Diamonds} hit the turn. Ivey bet only to face an all-in raise from Yamron for 150,000. Ivey called.

Yamron: {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Ivey: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Both players had Aces-up but Ivey had the better of it. Yamron could catch a low, but the {Q-Diamonds} brought the end to his quest and cemented Ivey into history.

Congratulations Phil!
