As far as Ivey goes, HighStakesDB.com broke it down: 

Ivey spread out his winnings between the mixed games, PLO and NLHE, although his single biggest win came at the NLHE tables where he took on Alex Millar heads up at a table of $300/$600. In a single session lasting just over an hour Ivey took over $280k from the young brit, winning from the start to the finish of the dual and shipping all the biggest pots along the way. The session produced three six figure pots, all of which fell to Ivey.
