After being left short of chips not too long ago by Ole Schemion, Phil Ivey did his best to stage a comeback.
Richard Yong raised from the cutoff to 50,000 and Schemion in the small blind asked to see big blind Ivey’s stack so he could count it. A slightly irritated Ivey let him have a look and when Schemion called Ivey flicked his cards away to fold. Schemion won the hand by check calling the turn when Yong bet and then leading big on the river. Yong folded.
On the next hand Yong opened again for 50,000 and Ivey folded the small blind and big blind Daniel Colman folded too.
A few hands later it was folded round to small blind Schemion who raised to 50,000 and Ivey moved all in for his last 147,000 from the big blind. It was unclear if Schemion knew this possible outcome when he raised but having got a count he made the call with . Ivey tabled .
The flop shot Schemion into the lead and Ivey started taking off his microphone. The turn though saw Ivey hit his set and the shirt was buttoned back up as the river fell.
Ivey had doubled up.
Two hands later though Ivey raised to 50,000 from the cutoff and Olivier Busquet made it 100,000 form the small blind. Back to Ivey who moved all in and was called.
The board ran out .
Ivey started taking his mic off again on the turn and he would not need to put it back on again. His tournament had come to an end just short of the final table.
