Peters flopped trip jacks and held from there to eliminate the 10-time WSOP gold bracelet winner.

Late on Day 2 of Event #32: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E., Phil Ivey was still in the mix with four tables remaining. He ended up busting in 26th place. Ivey lost the majority of his chips in an Omaha hi-lo hand to David Williams and then was eliminated shortly thereafter.
Ivey made another run at winning his 11th WSOP bracelet as he entered the final table of Event #42: $100,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller second in chips. After losing a few pots early, he managed to double into the chip lead when he caught a flush against Benjamin Heath. Entering heads-up play against Latvian Aleksejs Ponakovs with a slight deficit, Ivey surged ahead when his top pair held in a pot where Ponakovs looked to bluff with ace-high. Ponakovs regained the lead when he flopped top pair that improved to trips. The final hand would see Ivey all-in on the turn with a straight draw against Ponakovs second pair, and when the river could only improve Ivey to an inferior pair, his quest for his 11th WSOP bracelet was halted.
It was another deep run for Ivey in Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller as he entered the final table in fifth place overall.

Ivey flopped top pair, but Soverel flopped two pair and found two streets of value against Ivey. Ivey remained one of the short stacks, and after seeing three-time WSOP bracelet winner Dan Zack eliminated in eighth place, Ivey followed in seventh after he pushed all-in from middle position holding queen-jack and was looked up by Brandon Steven with ace-queen. Both players flopped a queen, but when the turn and river blanked out, Ivey was eliminated in seventh place and earned $597,381 in prize money.
After two final table runs, Ivey would look to replicate that in Event #63: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship. Ivey registered on Day 2 and after reaching the money, he would be eliminated by defending champion Josh Arieh in 37th place for $16,171 in prize money.
