Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Lindgren's "New Face" No Good; Ivey Soars Early

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

We arrived at the table in time to find Erick Lindgren and Phil Ivey looking down at a completed board of {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Lindgren checked over to Ivey who fired out a bet of 90,000. Lindgren came over the top with a check-raise to 315,000, sending Ivey deep into the tank. Over a minute passed before Ivey spoke up.

"He's got a new face," said Ivey about Lindgren. "This new face. It's throwing me off."

This elicited a chuckle from Daniel Negreanu across the table. Despite the surrounding laughter, Lindgren remained motionless. Another minute passed while Ivey played with enough chips to call. He let out a sigh and flung them forward. Lindgren shook his head and threw {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} onto the felt. Ivey rolled over {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for trip aces and the win.

"Wow!" piped Negreanu. "I thought he had better than that!"

"I thought he had exactly that," replied Lindgren as he continued to shake his head.

"It's just that new face," said Ivey. "It's throwing me off. That new face almost got me to fold."

Ivey's call allowed him to spring into an early chip lead with about 3.45 million while Lindgren's stack has dropped to around 2.6 million.
