If you want to watch some of the world's best poker pros playing at the top of their games, you don't have to do anything more than log on to Full Tilt Poker and open one of the tables highlighted in red. To see what we mean, take a look at this recent hand between Phil Ivey and John D'Agostino.
In a $300/$600 heads-up No-Limit Hold 'em game, Dags raised to $1,800 from the button before the flop. Ivey re-raised to $5,400 and John called the extra $3,600. Following a flop of A-J-K rainbow, Ivey bet $7,800.
Dags re-raised to $20,000 and Ivey pushed back, making it $43,200 to go. John came back over the top, pushing all in for nearly $63,600. Ivey called the additional $20,400 and the cards revealed that each man had flopped a set, with Dags holding Kings and Ivey holding Aces.
At this point in the hand, Ivey was a 95 percent favorite to win and had Dags drawing nearly dead. Guess what happened?
On the turn, D'Agostino caught the case King, giving him quads to Ivey's full house. When the river brought a harmless 10, Dags took down a pot of nearly $138,000.
I think Phil Ivey or FTP owes me at least $1 for this bad beat story.
