Phil Ivey Watch: Under 100 Remain in 2009 WSOP

2009 WSOP

As of 9:30 pm PST, Phil Ivey had 3,260,000 chips and was placing firmly in the top 20 at the 2009 World Series of Poker.  Ivey is considered one of the best poker players in the world today.  The fact that there were only under 100 players remaining has provided some hope he might make the final table, bringing much needed star power come November.

Ludovic Lacay was back on top, having hovered around the number two spot yesterday.  Billy Kopp had fallen out of that position but still ranked well at number 6.

A bunch of relative unknowns sat among the top 10. 

Antonio Esfandiari, the Iranian born poker player, was hanging around the top 60.  He has over $500,000 in live career poker winnings to date.

Last year's 3rd place finisher at the 2008 WSOP (and winner of $4.5 mil), Dennis Phillips, was still very much in the thick of things.

Tom Schneider had fallen quite a bit during the day after holding the chip lead at one point, as did Matt Afleck. 

Last year's World Series of Poker winner, Peter Eastgate, was still holding up but sitting in the lower half of the remaining players.

Joe Sebok was down to the second lowest chip count (340,000) and looked down for the count.

While it's true that Illinois has legalized sports betting, the state's largest city (3nd biggest in the US), Chicago, has forbidden firms from taking bets there.  That could all change....though probably not until after the 2021 NFL season.
