Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty

Xu Spikes An Ace, Cracks Ivey's Cowboys

• Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Phil Ivey opened under the gun to 12,000 and action folded around to Rong Xu who moved all in for 40,500 on the button. The small blind folded and after getting the count from the dealer, Scott Shannon called from the big blind. Action was back to Ivey who jammed over the top for 298,000 and that was too much for Shannon as mucked his hand.

Phil Ivey: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Rong Xu: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

After seeing his opponents table their hands, Shannon announced he folded pocket jacks, and then the flop came {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The turn came the {7-Diamonds} and Ivey had one more card to go before he added a bounty chip to his collection.

Hu stood up getting ready to exit the tournament field but the dealer then peeled the {a-Clubs} on the river and Xu took his seat and collected his piot.
