Phil Ivey might win the main event!

Postby blackchilli » Thu Jul 16, 2009 3:16 am

Hi folks, short news update. 27 players left in the main event and Phil Ivey is 4th in chip stacks. I think there's a big chance that he can take it. It will be an amazing run for him after winning 2 bracelets this year. Oh yeah, another pro with a decent stack is Antonio Esfandiari. He's a good tournament player too.

The final three tables of 27 players meet back today at noon to play down to the November Nine. Play started today for the Main Event with a little over seven minutes left on the clock from level 29.

Leo Margets, the last woman standing, would be the first victim to fall in the day. Warren Zackey opened for 350,000 and Margets came over the top and moved all in. Zackey called holding [Ah] [Th] and Margets was dominated holding [As] [7h]. The board ran [4c] [8d] [Ts] [4h] [2c] and Margets Main Event run was over.

Jesse Haabak entered the day as one of the smaller stacks with only 2.75 million in chips with the average stack around 7.237 million. He opened a pot with an all-in shove from late position. Zackey found [Ac] [Kd] on the button and made the call. Haabak tabled [Qh] [9h] looking for help on the flop. The board ran [Ts] [Kh] [As] [5d] [3h] and Haabak’s tournament was over after eight long days of play.

Francois Balmigere opened to 330,000 from middle position and Steven Begleiter called as did Billy Kopp. The flop hit [Th] [7c] [6d] and Kopp bet out 700,000 and Balmigere moved all-in for 2.785 million. Begleiter folded and Kopp tanked. He finally called holding [8d] [7d] and Balmigere held [Jh] [Jc]. The turn and river were [Ah] [9h] which made Kopp’s straight. The Frenchman’s day was over and Balmigere left the Amazon room.

The next elimination came when Antonio Esfandiari opened to 310,000 UTG and Begleiter called in middle position. The flop came [4c] [2d] [Td] and Esfandiari continued with a 535,000 bet and Begleiter raised to 1.61 million. Esfandiari moved all-in for 2.5 million more. Begleiter made the call and tabled [Kc] [Tc] and was ahead of Esfandiari’s [5h] [5d]. A [6h] on the turn and a [As] on the river ended “The Magician’s” deep Main Event run.

With four eliminations in the first level of play the remaining players are getting deeper and deeper stacked. Play resumed at level 31 with 80,000/160,000 blinds with a 20,000 ante.

Hi folks, latest update. The magician is out in 23rd, and Phil Ivey has a below average chipstack in a field of 14. Damn it would be great if he could win this.

Hi all! Last update. Phil Ivey made it to the November Nine. He'll be at the final table which will be carried out in November at the end of the year.

Chip stacks:
Darwin Moon 59,770,000
Eric Buchman 36,300,000
Steve Begleiter 28,195,000
Jeff Shulman 20,510,000
Joseph Cada 13,620,000
Kevin Schaffel 13,080,000
Antoine Saout 10,200,000
Phil Ivey 10,100,000
James Akenhead 5,760,000

Blinds are currently at $150,000 - $300,000 with a $40,000 ante.

The shitty thing is, we'll have to wait till November to watch the final table. Anyone thinks Phil Ivey has a chance?

There's some weird BS going on. They rearranged all the chip counts even though they stopped playing long ago. Phil is now 3rd shortest with 9million plus. Really weird.

Another thingy thats strange is that there are 6494 entrants in the tourney and the prize pool is 61 million. It should be 64 million! WTF is going on?
