Phil Ivey Wins Bracelet #8 in 2010 WSOP

Phil Ivey, the most successful player in poker today, has just himself another win in his belt, and earned himself another place in poker's history books. Bringing his tournament winnings to over $13 million, Phil Ivey won Event #37 of the 2010 WSOP $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. event and its $320K top prize.

This bumps Team Full member Ivey up to fourth place on the All Time Bracelets rankings, alongside Erik Seidel, another member of Team Full Tilt, and Johnny Moss. But of all of these men, Ivey is both the youngest and the fastest to earn his 8 WSOP gold bracelets. Ivey is also number 1 on the All Time Money rankings and one of the original sponsors of one of the best online poker rooms accepting US players.

Ivey's first WSOP win was the $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha event in 2000 when he was 23 years old. Most recently before this latest win, we all remember watching Phil Ivey make it to the final table of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event only to bust out in 7th.

Full Tilt Poker is consistently one of the sites that awards the most WSOP Main Event seats each year. There are still seats left to be awarded into the 2010 WSOP Main Event. And once this upcoming championship has come and gone, it'll be time to seed players into the 2011 event.

In the 2010 WSOP HORSE event, Ivey bounced back from the short stack when there were 16 players left to the second largest stack when the final table was set. Fellow member of Team Full Tilt John Juanda was also at that table, finishing in 3rd. Runner-up to Ivey was Bill Chen.

At Full Tilt Poker you can play against Phil Ivey, Erik Seidel, and other celebrity members of Team Full Tilt.
