The 411 On The 41st (WSOP): Ivey Wins His Eighth!
June 22, 2021
Phil Ivey, already unquestionably one of the most accomplished poker players alive, earned his eighth World Series of Poker bracelet early this morning- his third in two years- in Event #37, a $3,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. tournament.

Ivey outlasted a total field of 478 players to earn this most recent bracelet, a top prize worth $329,840, and most likely millions in personal prop bets, battling along the way numerous fellow big name pros. 

Some of those pros- a surprising number in fact- followed Ivey all the way to the final table including Chad Brown, Jeffrey Lisandro, Bill Chen and John Juanda, who with three previous 2010 WSOP final tables now leads the WSOP Player of the Year race, despite not yet scoring a 2010 bracelet.

With this win, Ivey is now tied with Erik Seidel for the fourth most WSOP wins in history, behind only Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan and Phil Hellmuth.  Ivey has also increased his overall lead on the all time live tournament cash list with over $13,000,000 worth of winnings now documented.

The final table finish positions for Event #37, the $3,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E., were as follows:

1st.  Phil Ivey- $329,840

2nd.  Bill Chen- $203,802

3rd.  John Juanda- $129,553

4th.  Ken Aldridge- $93,418

5th.  Jeffrey Lisandro- $68,417

6th.  Dave Baker- $50,871

7th.  Albert Hahn- $38,391

8th.  Chad Brown- $29,406
