Ivy Wins 8th WSOP Gold Bracelet

Poker’s standout Phil Ivy won’t be satisfied with just adding a few poker championship bracelets from the World Series. Ivy, who won her eighth bracelet in the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. competition at the Rio Olympics on Tuesday morning, said she could collect 30 gold bracelets before finishing. Ivy won first place among 478 entries in the H.O.R.S.E. competition and won $329,840. 안전놀이터 추천

“I think we can get to him if we keep playing and stay healthy,” Ivy told World Series poker spokesperson Nolan Dalla shortly after he moved into a tie for fifth place with Eric Sidel for the all-time tournament bracelet. “I’m going to continue playing tournaments and I hope to win another one before it’s over,” said Ivey. “I want to do well at the main event, of course. It would be great to win one of these years.”

According to official records, Ivy has won the World Series of Poker eight times, 22 finals appearances, and 40 top prize money titles. He has won more than $5.2 million in the World Series of Poker. According to various sources, his tournament win around the world is now approaching $13 million, the highest in poker history.

The victory put 33-year-old Ivy of Las Vegas ahead of Billy Baxter and Men “The Master” Nguyen, who each have seven World Series poker titles. Phil Helmus Jr. holds 11 World Series poker championship bracelets, followed by Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan with 10 each. The late Johnny Moss won nine championship bracelets. It was Ivy’s first win of the year and the 37th of the 57-event.

At last year’s World Series of Poker, Ivy captured two gold bracelets. He collected $1.4 million and finished seventh in the main event world championship, which is held without a $10,000 buy-in limit. “Obviously, I’m disappointed I didn’t win,” said Ivy. “I mean, life goes on. I think there will be more Nov. 9 in my future.” But the money Ivy earned for his victory on Tuesday morning seemed secondary to picking bracelets.

“How much did the first place pay?” Ivy calmly asked a bystander right after her win. Although Chen once had a 3-1 chip advantage over Ivy, he beat Bill Chen, a two-time gold medal bracelet winner, in a head-up game.
