Phil Ivey is now an 11-time WSOP bracelet after winning Event #29: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship at the 2024 World Series of Poker. Ivey collected $347,440 in prize money after returning for the unscheduled Day 4 in a three-handed battle with Jason Mercier and Danny Wong. With his victory to claim his 11th WSOP bracelet, Ivey now exceeds $10,000,000 in WSOP earnings and more than $45,300,000 in lifetime tournament earnings, according to The Hendon Mob.

Ivey now breaks free from a four-way tie with Erik Seidel, Johnny Chan, and the late Doyle Brunson, who all have 10 WSOP bracelets. With Ivey now being an 11-time WSOP bracelet winner, he is the lone player in the driver's seat to chase down Phil Hellmuth, who sits atop the WSOP mountain with 17 WSOP bracelets.

"Anytime winning a World Series of Poker event is always special," Ivey said. "I've been playing the World Series of Poker for 25 years. It's really nice to win."

Although Hellmuth is often regarded as the best WSOP player of all time, Ivey has a remarkable case to disprove that decree. From the 11 WSOP bracelets Ivey has won, they have come in nine different poker variants. In comparison, Hellmuth has won 17 WSOP bracelets in our only five different poker variants: No-Limit Hold'em, Pot-Limit Hold'em, Limit Hold'em, No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw, and Razz. Ivey has won two Pot-Limit Omaha bracelets - including his first in 2,000 - along with gold in Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, S.H.O.E., Seven Card Stud, No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw, Omaha Hi-Lo/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo split, H.O.R.S.E., and two in 8-Game Mix. Ivey's 11first WSOP bracelet is in Limit 2-7 Triple Draw - a game he had never cashed in at the WSOP until today. Another first for Ivey at this WSOP is that he collected his first-ever cash in Dealer's Choice.

"I love to play," Ivey said if he feels excited to still play after all these years. "I like to play as many as I can. I had to take a lot of years off. But it's good to be back playing again. Hopefully, more to come."

On the scheduled final day of Event #29: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship, 13 players returned, with Danny Wong holding the chip lead ahead of Jason Mercier. The field would play down to the final four before the PokerGO livestream began, and after losing defending champion Benny Glaser in fourth place, play was eventually halted for Day 3.

Wong retained the overall chip lead, and Mercier was again sitting in second, while Phil Ivey rounded out the final three in a quest for his 11th WSOP bracelet. Mercier had a lot to play for also as he was looking to win his seventh WSOP bracelet, while Wong was attempting to win his second WSOP bracelet, and first one live.

Mercier would be eliminated on Day 4 in third place as Wong held a two-to-one chip lead over Ivey. Ivey clawed his way to even and then surged out to the lead. Ivey put his foot on the gas and furthered his advantage to a nine-to-one chip lead before the final hand of the tournament. On the final draw with Wong all-in, he tabled a ten-eight to be against Ivey's when draw. Ivey pitched one card and drew a deuce to make a wheel to win his 11th WSOP bracelet and the $347,440 first-place prize.
