No-Limit Hold'em

Action folded to Phil Ivey in the cutoff seat and he raised to 20,000. On the button, Samuel Golbuff reraised all in for 159,000. The blinds folded and Ivey quickly called.

Ivey turned over the {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and was way ahead of the {6-Hearts}{2-Spades} for Golbuff.

The flop came down an interesting {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, giving Golbuff a pair and a straight draw, but keeping Ivey in front.

The {K-Spades} landed on the turn and Ivey was still in the lead, but a miracle {4-Spades} on the river gave Golbuff a six-high straight and doubled him up.

As the tournament director counted down that stack of Golbuff, all he could do was laugh at what had just happened while Ivey just stared blankly with his famous "Ivey face" and mouth dropped open as if to say, "Was that even real?"

Ivey was cripped and down to just 11,000 in chips.
