Phil Ivey has joined one of poker's most exclusive clubs after winning his tenth World Series of Poker bracelet.
The American joins Phil Hellmuth (13), Doyle Brunson (10) and Johnny Chan (10) in the double-figure bracelet club after triumphing in the $1,500 Eight-Game Mix Event.14 of the 485-runner field remained at the start of the final day with Ivey sitting in third place. A number of notable names fell by the wayside early on including Christian Pereira, Amnom Filippi and Daniel Negreanu but Ivey cruised comfortably near the head of the chip counts.By the time Britain's Stephen Chidwick had departed in fifth, Ivey had more than double the chips of his closest rival. An Ivey victory may have looked a foregone conclusion but Bruce Yamron had other ideas. The American went on a heater to take the chip lead and moved into two-handed play with a slight advantage.Ivey's experience told in the end though and he dominated heads-up proceedings, eventually sealing the title in a round of Omaha 8 when his two pair hand of aces and kings crushed the former jewellery store owner's aces and sevens.In addition to the $167k first prize, Ivey is expected to have hit the jackpot with a series of big bracelet side bets. Ivey and Daniel Negreanu threw out a pre-series challenge that one of them would win a bracelet.
Min bet is $5k against me and Ivey winning a bracelet this summer and the odds are even money. One of us wins- you lose. Simple.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) May 14, 2014
