Ivey Folds River, Takes Fan Photo

[user196676] • Level 1

Pot-Limit Omaha

We arrived at the table in time to see Phil Ivey and Elior Sion take a flop of {K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Ivey took the lead with a bet of 1,300 and Sion wasted little time calling. The {8-Spades} hit the felt on the turn and Ivey reached for chips. He fired 4,200 on fourth street, but once again saw a call from Sion.

The {6-Diamonds} completed the board and Ivey slowed with a check. Sion dipped into his larger denomination chips, moving 11,000 into the middle. Ivey thought for about 45 seconds before releasing his hand.

After folding, Ivey immediately stood up from the table and made his way to the rail. A fan on the rail stood next to him while another person took a picture. After the photo, Ivey briskly walked back to the table and did not miss a hand.
