He won his tenth WSOP bracelet in Eight-Game Mix - Phil Ivey
Phil Ivey proved to the gambling community last weekend that he remains a top poker player in the world. The Tiger Woods-like poker player actually won his tenth WSOP bracelet of his career along with the bet on which he and Daniel Negreanu were wagered to grab a bracelet this summer. Negreanu almost won the bet in early June but he was dropped to the second place in the $ 10,000 No Limit Deuce-to-Seven Draw Lowball (Event # 13). In this 45th edition of the World Series Of Poker, Phil wins the bet by emerging victorious in this $ 5,000 of minimum buy-in poker tournament. With this new bracelet, Phil Ivey joins the close circle of players with 10 or more WSOP bracelets. His overall earnings are now estimated at $ 21.5 million. Johnny Chan, Doyle Brunson and Phil Ivey actually have 10 bracelets while Phil Hellmuth is well ahead of the group with 13 bracelets.
Phil Ivey collected $ 167,332 for his win in the $ 1,500 Eight-Game Mix (Event # 50 played in eight variants of poker) over a field of 485 players. Phil Ivey illuminated in a final table of eight players. Bruce Yamron finishes runner-up in the tournament for $ 103,375 of gain. Dan Heimiller occupies the third place with a prize of $ 66,246, followed by Aaron Steury (4th, $ 44,286), Stephen Chidwick (5th, $ 30,488), Yuebin Guo (6th, $ 21,692), Christoph Haller (7th, $ 15,720) and Alex Rocha (8th, $ 11,750).
