A eight gold bracelet winner against a single bracelet winner and the "rookie" beated the master.

The game went well for Andy and Ivey let the bracelet run for the oponents side. Will Ivey still play in any other event this year? He may have the chance to get his 9th bracelet in 2012...

just another piece of evidence that poker is a game of luck- how do you think, what are the chances of any amateur coming to play against nadal in the french open final and actually beating him? the only chance is injury, but besides that chances are close to nil...however in poker there is a completely different situation, any amateur can outplay the greatest pro? so how can one call this a game of skill?
