Phil Ivey wins eighth WSOP bracelet

Posted on augustus 10, 2010 by CasinoBazar

Phil Ivey wins eighth WSOP braceletAfter playing through a 478-strong field at the $3k HORSE, Phil Ivey defeated Bill Chen heads-up to claim his eighth WSOP bracelet and, in all likelihood, several million dollars in side bet action. Ivey got heads-up against Chen after defeating a final table that included Jeff Lisandro and John Juanda, but no one was surprised - as we say, it was inevitable.

So inevitable, in fact, we typed that paragraph before the heads-up match was concluded to save time. No US Presidential Election-style misprints for us, though, as Ivey came through to score his first bracelet of 2010.

The final hand was a massive cooler - as Razz goes - with each player being dealt three to a wheel and picking up a strong low. Ivey's 6-5 low had Chen's 7-6 low squashed, however, and when the Great One caught a 4 on the river to make a wheel that was the tournament over in a decisive fashion.

Ivey wins $329,840 for his eighth WSOP bracelet which puts him on par with Erik Seidel. This also takes him over the $13,000,000 mark in live tournament earnings.

18 May, 2011 at 3:32 pmHi Pete,If I wasn't sponsored I guess the best deal I would get aekrback-wise would be about 40-50%. Assuming 40%, playing 4 tables of 6-max PLO (which is my grinding a living game), I would aekrback about €15-20 per hour at €0.5/€1 and €1/€2 tables. In addition to that, I'd expect to grind out about 3bbs/100 (that's HEM bbs, not PT3bbs), so at 300 hands per hour (4 tables), that's either €9 or €18 per hour actual profit, depending on which stakes (I would table select to get the best tables from each).So that's around €25-€40 per hour, which is tax free. However, you'd probably need to do about a quarter of your time again reading up, analysing your play and improving your game, which of course is not paid. When I was just grinding online, I rarely played more than 20 hours per week at the actual tables, so figure another 5 hours per week of learning.So it's around €600-€700 per week, tax free, for around 25 hours work. 25 hours may not sound like much, but note that in the average salaried job, the amount of useful work which gets done is somewhere in the region of 25 hours per week. The rest is faffing, making coffee, having breaks and chatting to colleagues, which poor old poker players would have to take out of their hourly rate
