Phil Ivey Wins EIGHTH World Series of Poker Championship
Phil Ivey is back on top of the poker world. Seven months after finishing seventh in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event, Ivey won his eighth World Series of Poker championship early Tuesday morning at the Rio. Ivey won a $3,000 HORSE — a five-game mix of hold'em, Omaha, razz, stud and stud high-low split eight or better — tournament to further establish his reputation as the world's best poker player. Elite pros John Juanda and Jeffrey Lisandro were in the final table.
