Triton Poker Cyprus: Phil Ivey Takes Down Another Short Deck Poker Title!

The poker legend, Phil Ivey has done it again! After entering Day 2 of Triton Poker Cyprus Event #3: $75,000 Short Deck with the third-highest chip lead, Ivey went on to clinch the title. He took home a whopping $1,170,000 in the process. This is also Ivey’s third final table at the Triton Poker Cyprus festival.

Ivey reached the heads-up stage of the tournament with Wai Kiat Lee as his opponent. He eventually defeated to claim the title while Malaysian poker player Lee finished in the runner-up position for $840,000. Ivey beat a 51-player field to emerge victorious in this competition.

Day 2 Recap

After an intense Day 1, the 51-player field was cut down to just 11 players that made it to Day 2. Out of these 11 players, only the top 7 would make the money. Among those that were eliminated in the earlier stages were Mikita Badziakouski, Daniel Cates, Chris Brewer, and others.

The game continued with Ivey knocking out a few more opponents. He also eliminated fan-u Ivan Leow in seventh place. Here’s the game-changing moment:

Jason Koon, who was the chip lead when Day 2 began, was eliminated in fifth place for $315,000. As the game reached the heads-up stage, Ivey knocked out Mike Watson in third place, giving him a 2:1 chip lead against Lee. This boost eventually resulted in him adding another Short Deck win to his list and a prize money of $1,170,00 in his kitty.
