Phil Ivey's Attempt For 11th Bracelet Ends in Disaster

The latest from the World Series of Poker 2019 tournament.  Ivey has to wait another day.Phil Ivey's 11th World Series of Poker bracelet will have to wait another day.

Phil Ivey was the tournament chip leader heading into Day 4 of the Poker Player's Championship on Thursday. There were only 11 other players standing between Ivey and his 11th World Series of Poker bracelet, which would have put him in sole possession of the #2 spot on the all-time bracelet list.

The three-way bracelet tie between Ivey, Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan will remain for now, however, as Ivey was dispatched from the tournament in 8th place.

The problem for Ivey is that the $50,000 Poker Players Championship is one of the most stacked tournaments in the world, so when the cards started going against Ivey, he quickly found himself out of the tournament.

This was delightful news for the rest of the players in the tournament, as Ivey's departure greatly improved their chances of winning.


Heading into the final day of play on Friday, the final table of the $50k PPC will look like this:

Josh Arieh, 6,220,000
Bryce Yockey, 4,465,000
Phillip Hui, 4,135,000
John Esposito, 3,630,000
Shaun Deeb, 2,485,000
Daniel Cates, 1,260,000

The final table should be an entertaining one, as it includes the likes of Arieh (remember his outbursts in the 2004 World Series of Poker main event), Shaun Deeb (who loves to needle his opponents) and Daniel "Jungleman" Cates, who is also prone to outbursts.


Here are the remaining payouts:

1st - $1,009,311
2nd - $679,246
3rd - $466,407
4th - $325,989
5th - $232,058
6th - $168,305
