Phil Ivey leads 2019 WSOP Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship, Tom Dwan didn't Make It

Tags: 2019 WSOP, Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan.

As of this writing, Phil Ivey is the chip leader amongst the remaining 38 players going into Day 3 out of 5 in Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship at this year's World Series of Poker.

WSOP 2019 Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship
Prizepool: $3,552,000
Schedule: June 24 to June 28, 2019 (5 days of play)
Entrants: 74
Remaining: 38

Even though the number of players who participated in this event had been the smallest turnout in the history of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, its record-low attendance wasn't much of a big deal mainly because there were two big stars that entered: Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan.

Phil Ivey was able to rise up the ranks late in the day, and stayed on top to lead the remaining 38 players when the second day ended.

At the moment, the one who walks away the winner is set to take home $1,099,311, but it is still too early to finalize the top prizes. Only twelve lucky players will go home with the money and there's a possibility that Day 3 would bring the tournament close to the bubble, but not enough into the money.

Tom Dwan has also participated in this event, and both he and Ivey are definitely a sight for sore eyes when they were seen amongst the PPC field, considering they've been spending most of their time playing the game in Asian territories rather than in US states within the past few years. Ivey came back to the WSOP scene last year, but this will be Dwan's first time to come back again (he hasn't cashed at the WSOP for 8 years now). The degen short deck pro appeared and joined at the late registration buzzer; however, his time at the event was cut short as he busted in the second day's final level.

Trailing behind Ivey are two former PPC champs: John Hennigan and Matthew Ashton.

John "World" Hennigan is second in chips next to Ivey in this event with 1,209,000. Hennigan won this same event back in 2014 for $1,517,767. The 48-year-old American pro has recently won his 6th WSOP bracelet by defeating Daniel Negreanu in Event #41: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship ($245,451).

Matthew Ashton, who took down the PPC event in 2013, currently sits in 7th place with 911,000 in chips.

With currently 1,254,000 chips in Ivey's bag, the 10-time bracelet winner is a hot candidate to win his fourth Poker Players Championship cash.

Day 3 of the $50K Poker Players Championship will begin on June 26, Wednesday, at 2pm local time, with action resuming with 12,000/24,000 limits.

This is like a good shower on a chic day for Phil Ivey. Tom Dwan also needs good results and we will see what will happen. I hope at the end of the WSOP 50 Series to see a list with all final tables of the games. I want to know who all the bracelet winners are.

You know for a 50k buy in there will have to be some high rollers and players of proven ability but look at all the tough competition besides those named in the article: Benyamine, Haxton, Cates, Deeb, both Mizrachi brothers, Mercier, Galfond, Hastings.

Just watched Daniel vlog and saw ivey in it daniel was messing around like usual xD.
Ivey is amazing player and hopefully he can take that $1,099,311 home anyway just 12 players are gonna get into money which is gonna be hard because there are alot of good players.
Good luck to everyone.
The only sad thing that pool prizes are dropping almost every year in WSOP...

It's a price of a brand new car. I hate tournaments like this, there is no reason for them to exist, not even a hundred people particpating in it.

Phil ivy again Chip Leader .... this is very cool .... he certainly had a period when he didn’t have a game at all. It worked and there were problems with the casino .... but now, as I see, he has again found equilibrium and plays as before .... and apparently the card favors him ... Well, a good player is a good game .... let's see how it all ends .. maybe he will be the winner

Either you like this player or not, he has what it takes to rank among the best
players in a tournament and win it. Although, he is a better cash player
than a tournament one i believe.
The buy ins of course you can say it is crazy money for most of us Smile
You either professional poker player or not Smile
