Ivey loses from former Wall Street equity trader
An exciting competition at the 2012 World Series of poker was Event 17 - a $10,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Hold'em, which did not go so well for everyone, including famous ace Phil Ivey, who lost a chance to win his ninth WSOP bracelet to a former Wall Street equity trader Andy Frankenberger.
Namely, Frankenberger defeated Ivey in the heads up, beating him to the WSOP bracelet, his second, and the $445,899 main prize after three days of intense action, which attracted 179 hopefuls.
Some of these were top international players, many of which ended up at the final table, which comprised: Frankenberger and Ivey, Ali Eslami, Alexander Venovski, Manuel Bevand, Shaun Deeb, Matthew Marafioti, Daniel Weinman and Hoyt Corkins.
After his win, which left Ivey with a runner-up paycheck for $275,559, Frankenberger commented: “Winning a bracelet is everyone’s dream, but beating Ivey heads-up is like a fairytale. I can’t even believe it just happened. He is such a great player, and I learned a lot from playing with him at the final table.”
