Phil Ivey Picks off Monster Bluff on Second $200k Coin Rivet Bullet

Phil Ivey proved yet again he has balls of steel, the poker legend calling a bluff for his tournament life at the $200k buy-in Coin Rivet Invitational...

Ivey was already on his second bullet when he was put to the test by Christoph Vogelsang on day 2 of the wealthy amateur-invites-pro tournament in northern Cyprus.

The button vs big blind showdown saw Ivey raising it up and both Ben Heath and Vogelsang calling in the blinds...

Ivey: 10♦ 6♦
Heath: 5♠ 5♦
Vogelsang 7♣ 6♣

Flop: 10♣ 8♣ 3♦

Both players checked to Ivey, who bet 16k into the 45k pot, and the two calls took us to the turn...

Turn: 8♥

Vogelsang now bet out 55k with his inside straight flush draw, Heath getting out of the way after Ivey called, the pot now standing at 203k, with Ivey only having 121k behind.

River: K♥

Vogelsang, having missed his flush draw, now made his big bluff, putting Ivey all-in for his tournament life. His second pair would only really be good against a stone-cold bluff, but could Ivey find the call with $400k invested and 15 bigs left if he just folded?

You don’t gain legend status for no reason...and you can see Phil thinking it through and making the big call below!

Though Ivey would later fall, in a tournament full of amazing plays, both Dan “Jungleman” Cates and Antanas “Tony G” Guoga were also involved in incredible hands.

Jungleman Dan can be seen abusing the $380,000 money bubble like no other...

...while the irrepressible Tony G was as loudmouthed as ever, proclaiming himself king...

With the winner picking up $5.5million, one of the biggest stories so far is ACR pro Ebony Kenney’s deep run, making the money and loving every minute of it...
