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). 

That’s a drop in the ocean compared to his overall lifetime earnings of $34,068,028. It is also his ninth career seven-figure score.

You can watch the whole tournament from start to finish below.

The Triton Series concludes today with the $125,000 Short Deck Main Event.

1st Phil Ivey $1,170,000
2nd Wai Kiat Lee $840,000
