Ivey in Contention for 10th Bracelet

It’s fair to say that the 2013 WSOP hasn’t caught fire yet. Phil Hellmuth has had a pretty brutal run bar going deep in the heads-up and only Mike Matusow has struck gold for the old-school. But that could all change tonight, as Phil Ivey attempts to do the one thing he hasn’t achieved yet in poker – winning a no-limit hold’em bracelet.

He’s currently ninth in Event 18, the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em event, which boasted 2,071 runners. He survived a late all-in last night when he shoved pre-flop holding K-Q to Ryan Austin’s A-J. The board paired Ivey’s Queen on the flop, much to the relief of railing supporters.

He’s got a fair amount of work to do though. With 285,000 chips Ivey is way behind Taylor Paur, the chip leader with over 1.3m, and under the average stack. However, if he can survive, double up and make the final table, this could be the first live stream it’s worth staying up all night for.

The action kicks off at 1pm PST (9pm UK time), which could see the final table starting at around 11pm. You can catch the action at WSOP.com.
