Ivey Takes One

Level 1 : 25-50, 0 ante

Michael Benvenuti opened to 125 from under the gun, and the action folded to Phil Ivey, who three-bet to 300 from the small blind. Benvenuti called, and the flop fell {3-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Ivey tossed out a single, purple T500 chip, and Benvenuti called.

Both players knuckled after the {q-Spades} turned, and the {7-Clubs} completed the board.

Ivey led again - this time for 1,300 - and Benvenuti released.
