“Throwback Hands” adds another memorable clash to THE VAULT on PokerGO with Phil Ivey leading the way. In a $50,000 Sit-N-Go, Ivey matches up against friend and familiar foe Allen Cunnigham with all the chips in the middle.
Ivey seems to remember never beating Cunningham in a spot such as this where he carries the preflop advantage. It’s a verbal game played between the two as they try to work every jinx in the book in their favor.
Saying a player has too many outs? Counting out the chips to pay the double before the river? It’s all there in this hand.

Ivey is known for a dry sense of humor and the asset works itself into the hand as he can only laugh about the madness unfolding in front of him.
