Phil Ivey Out Of Main Event After Glorious 2012 WSOP

Phil Ivey Out Of Main Event After Glorious 2012 WSOP After seeing his Day 1c starting stack of 30k reduced to just 11,525 chips (22bb), Phil Ivey has now been eliminated on Day 2c of the 2012 WSOP Main Event after another day in which he was unable to gain any traction.
Earlier Ivey had attempted a squeeze play for 2,500 but released his hand after a limper shoved on him. Then thirty-five minutes into play Ivey picked up a pair of deuces and moved all-in pre-flop, and was still a slight favourite when he was called by Nick DiVella with A-10. However, the A-10-8-6-8 board brought Ivey’s Main Event to a sudden close before it ever really got going.
The 36 year old pro has 8 WSOP bracelets to his name including 28 final tables, with $5,868,853 from his $16,694,534 career earnings accounted for at the WSOP. Ivey’s record in the Main Event is equally impressive and is as follows:
2002: 23rd out of 631 for $40,000
2003: 10th out of 839 for $82,70
2005: 20th out of 5,619 for $304,680
2009: 7th out of 6,494 for $1,404,014
2010: (WSOPE) 19th out of 346 for $40,727
Despite being eliminated from this year’s Main Event, Phil Ivey still managed one of the best runs seen at the Las Vegas tournament series, cashing 7 times including 5 final tables for $576,052 and is currently top of the 2012 WSOP POY on 568.70 points.
Phil Ivey missed last year’s WSOP in protest of the Full Tilt scandal. It was not just the fans who were disappointed not to see possibly the best player in the game in action, and as Ivey explained recently in a rare interview with WSOP.com website:
“It was very tough missing playing the World Series Of Poker. I love playing these tournaments and I missed it.”
Likewise, it was great seeing Ivey doing what he does best this year in Vegas, and as for his WSOP aspirations for the future, Ivey had this to say:
“If the World Series of Poker is still here, and I’m still alive, I think I will have 30 bracelets. That’s what I believe.”
