Event 39: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Ivey Crippled Just Before Break

"The last thing I ever want, is to be all in against Phil Ivey."

David Benyamine and Aubin Cazals limped in, before Phil Ivey raised to 650 out of the big blind. Only Benyamine called. The dealer fanned {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, and Ivey tossed out 1,100. Benyamine raised to 5,000, leaving about 10,000 behind. Ivey shook his head in frustration.

"I'm saving this for the break," Benyamine said, holding up his last 10,000-chip lammer.

"He's so funny," Ivey chuckled.

Ivey grabbed his whole stack and half pump-faked it into the pot, staring at Benyamine. He eventually plopped it forward, moving all in for effectively 15,250.

"I didn't want you to do that," Benyamine said, then called.

"Why?" Ivey asked.

"The last thing I ever want, is to be all in against Phil Ivey," Benyamine answered.


Ivey bricked everything as the turn and river were both black kings, and Benyamine shipped the 30,000-chip pot.

"Glad I came early," Ivey said then exited to head to his RV.
