Throwback: Phil Ivey vs Tom Dwan on Million-Dollar Pot

Tags: David Tuchman, Full Tilt Poker, Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan
Posted on 23 November 2018 by "T".
David Tuchman, who specializes in sports commentating for football and poker, recalls the awesome moments he witnessed as he commentated on a remarkable hand between Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan. It was in the Full Tilt Poker Million Dollar Cash Game around nine years ago that there were only three men, namely Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius battling it out at a poker table as midnight drew n[...]   Read more » Throwback: Phil Ivey vs Tom Dwan on Million-Dollar Pot

Ah those rare moments when the opponent is drawing dead, but does not know it, and goes all in. Quite an action card on the turn, to get things going. Remember that table, Ivey was down a lot throughout most of the game, after some coolers, but won the big hand against Antonius mentioned in the article, to make up most, if not all, of his losses.

His luck is just not from this universe. Or his talent, who knows...

I personally think it is.of course very much luck and talent have many people but like article say 99 percent of aggressive playera go broke and lose all bankrolls, but 1 percent become very big players and to me it is most because of luck, you have odds to win any hands if you not play versus absolute nuts so some people with luck win

Is a very painful hand for the one who loses it.
I remember when i started to playing poker in Full Tilt Poker i lost many times with this kind of hand.
It's not easy at all, even though i only played freeroll games, during that time.
To lose a pot of over a million dollars is terrible even for professional players.
Phil Ivey had a lot of bad luck with this hand.
If he folded directly A2 pre flop, it was great for him. Smile

I dont think i had ever seen that hand before.
A nice one, and with cards like that you just know that there would be some action.
Hard to play that hand differently. Ivey was doomed from the moment the
four came out Smile
And a hand that broke a record according to the commentator also.

I remember watching this hand many years ago and it is nice to see it again. This really was the definition of a cold deck and it was virtually impossible to get away from the losing hand

Probably the record is one million dollars pot.
There's a lot of money. Smile
Phil Ivey suffered for the loss of this hand but his behavior was honorable.
I play A2 in online tournaments only when the games are freeroll, but in tournament with real money very rarely.
He was supposed to do not play that hand. Confused

This wasn't a tourney but a cash game, where the stacks are deeper. And against Dwan ace high is very close to the nuts. I guess Ivey played the hand hoping for a board like the one that came up, but didn't expect to be beaten with his wheel.

I guess then, Jesus took the wheel.
