Phil Ivey Does Not Win WSOPE Event #2

World_series_of_poker_europe_2008Looks like Phil Ivey, who likes to gamble, has one last chance to win his WSOP bracelet prop bets.

Ivey was up and down all day at the Event #2 (£2,500 H.O.R.S.E.) final table. He eventually bowed out in sixth place, banking £13,750.

Looked like Howard Lederer would cruise to victory as he held the chip lead for awhile, but he was knocked out in third overall, adding £30,250 to his already ridiculous bankroll.

The final two ended up very "friends and family" considering the big names that final tabled, with Sherkhan Farnood winning the bracelet (£76,999) and Ivo Donev taking second (£48,125).

In related news, 100 signed up for Event #3 (£5,000 Pot Limit Omaha), and 45 survived to Day 2. Jason Mercier is the overnight chip leader stacked at 209,800. He’s followed by Shaun Deeb (190,700). Plenty of big names remain, including Neil Channing (128,000), David Williams (122,400), Phil Laak (111,400), Andy Bloch (109,200), Sorel Mizzi (105,000), and Alex Kravchenko (104,100).
