The icon of poker is now the second biggest earning Short Deck player in poker after another seven-figure score.
‘Phil Ivey wins Short Deck title’ is becoming almost as frequent a poker headline as ‘Phil Hellmuth wins a bracelet’ – as the legend of poker did it again at the Triton Series in Cyprus.
He defeated a field of 51 in the $75,000 Short Deck event to take down the title and first prize of $1,170,000.
Ivey’s last four live MTT wins have come in Short Deck tournaments and he now moves into second place in the All-Time Money Rankings for Short Deck with $8,300,366 in total winnings for the format (the overall leader is Paul Phua with $9,914,613).
