Ivey Takes From Steinberg

123md • Nivå 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Phil Ivey raised to 6,000 from under the gun and was called by the player in the hijack. Max Steinberg called from the big blind and the flop came down {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

Ivey continued for 15,000, both opponents called, and the {A-Spades} turn fell. Ivey bet 40,000 this time and only Steinberg called to see the {5-Spades} river. Both checked, Ivey tabled {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for top two pair, and Steinberg mucked.

Steinberg doubled up Olaoluwa Okelola at his table for about 70,000 a few hands later to slip even further.
