Phil Ivey Bubbles the 2023 WSOP $250,000 Super High Roller

Day 2 of the $250,000 Super High Roller at the 2023 World Series of Poker started with a scoop hot off the press, and finished off with another corker of a story.

Just before play began today, Jason Koon had his stack pulled from the largest buy-in event of the summer after he received word that his wife was in labor with their second child. And just before play closed for the night, Phil Ivey bubbled the six-figure buy-in event.

Ivey, who finished in seventh place in last year’s instalment, was the final player to leave empty-handed after his stack was claimed by the polarizing Martin Kabrhel.

Setting the Scene

The ten-time bracelet winner had a solid start to the second stage of the Super High Roller, ousting Mikita Badziakouski early on to see his chip count eclipse the 5 million mark. It also put him in the upper echelons of the chip counts, but by the time the bubble came around, Ivey was a short stack. 2022’s runner-up Brandon Steven was the only player separating ‘No Home Jerome’ from the bottom of the counts until he won a flip to get a day saving double up.

Ivey, on the outer table, put in his last 20 big blinds with A3 from the button and ran into the QQ held by Kabrhel.

Ivey only had some backdoor flush possibilities on the J77 flop as well as his overcard to leave Kabrhel way out in front. The 6 turn and 3 river marked the end of his journey while leaving everyone else at least $411,490 better off.

Kornuth Leads Final Nine in $250,000 Super High Roller

Ben Heath and Alfred Decarolis were the only two to depart after Ivey’s exit. Day 2 closed with nine remaining as the tournament’s conclusion is being decided on Sunday, June 18, at Horseshoe and Paris, Las Vegas. The action kicks off at 2 p.m. local time, and cards-up coverage will be available on PokerGO from 4 p.m.

Holding the chip lead is Chance Kornuth, who makes his third final table of the series. The Chip Leader Coaching co-founder has already amassed more than $1.5 million in WSOP cashes this summer, and the minimum he will walk away with tomorrow will be $478,663.

The $5,293,556 up top is the largest first-place prize of the summer so far and is $729,856 greater than what Alex Foxen received for winning the same event 12 months ago. Coincidentally, Foxen is the other half of Chip Leader Coaching and found himself in the same position as Kornuth the previous year. He went wire-to-wire to claim his first WSOP bracelet, and now the question is whether Kornuth can do the same for his fourth.
