Event#15 - Phil Ivey leads $10,000 Stud 8

Monday, 7 June 2010

The Stud Eight-or-Better $10,000 championship was constantly disrupted
by the sounds of cheers and applause from across the room as Tom Dwan
dominated his $1,500 NL final table and the majority of the Stud field
ran over to see if they had to pay the 23-year-old millions of

Overall, 170 players entered the Stud Eight event which concluded as
Event #11 did, with Daniel Negreanu and Mike Matusow running back to
their Stud tables screaming like little girls on Christmas as they
realised they didn’t have to pay Dwan seven figures plus... yet.

Anyway, back to Stud – of the 170 entrants now 118 remain after a full
day of play. At the top of this field is none other than Phil Ivey who
bagged over 109,000 at the end of the day. Jennifer Harman is hot on
his heels with a massive rack of chips.

Eli Elezra, Barry Greenstein and Gus Hansen all hit the top ten chip
counts also though many big names were sent home – Todd Brunson,
Michael Mizrachi and Greg Raymer all lost out early on. Tom Dwan is
still in the running on 22,000 despite the fact that he was playing
the final table of $1.5k NL most of the day.
