Mike Ellis Event 7 NL Holdem $1.5k 48th for $9,029

Congratulations to Phil Ivey, Winner of Event #8, $2,500 No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Lowball ($96,361)

Phil Ivey came into today looking for his sixth gold WSOP bracelet. Just over three and a half hours ago, only John Monnette stood in Ivey's way. After a couple hours of heads-up play, Monnette was dwindled down and severely short stacked as Ivey stormed to a massive chip lead. But then, Monnette rallied back with two big double ups to take back the lead. Ivey buckled down though, and grinded his way back to a 3:2 chip lead when the final hand came up. Ivey bested a field of 147 entrants that included some of the biggest names in poker to win his sixth bracelet and further cement his name in poker history. Phil was the crowd favorite and received an outstanding round of applause when it was all said and done. The win netted Ivey $96,361 in prize money and likely earned him a little extra pocket change from sidebets. At the conclusion of the event, Ivey snapped some quick photos with the bracelet and then jetted off down the hall to continue playing the $10,000 Mixed World Championship.
