Phil Ivey Wins 11th WSOP Bracelet in Event #29: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Phil Ivey has finally ended his nearly decade-long dry spell since his last win in 2014 at the World Series of Poker by winning the 2024 WSOP $10,000 triple draw deuce-to-seven lowball championship. He secured his 11th gold bracelet and took home $347,440. Ivey clinched the victory with the best possible hand in the game: 7-5-4-3-2.

At 47, the Poker Hall of Famer now holds the second spot on the WSOP titles leaderboard, with only Phil Hellmuth ahead of him, who has 17 bracelets. Johnny Chan, Erik Seidel, and the late Doyle Brunson are tied for third with 10 bracelets each.

“It’s good. It feels good. It feels good to win always,” Ivey said to reporters after his title, surrounded by a crowd celebrating his new career milestone.

Poker has changed a lot since the early 2000s. Online poker has boomed, and new players often play more hands in a day than old-school pros did in a year. Modern players rely heavily on solvers and game theory, spending more time with charts than reading their opponents.

Despite these changes, Ivey has remained at the top. His first bracelet in 2000 was won against Amarillo Slim. Now, he competes with players who weren’t born when he first became the game’s top player. His priorities have shifted; Ivey is now a family man who can’t dedicate as many hours to the game as he once did.

However, his passion and skill are undiminished. “I’m motivated. If I can play, I will. A lot of times I’m not in town,” he explained. “I keep showing up. Playing, performing. I want to keep winning.”

Ivey’s recent win renews his chase for Hellmuth’s record, but that isn’t his main focus. “I’m not thinking about that. I’m just playing. Just playing tournaments when I can,” he stated.

The event saw 149 entries, generating a $1,385,700 prize pool distributed among the top 23 finishers. Many well-known players cashed in, including two-time bracelet winner Marco Johnson (21st), bracelet winner Jose ‘Nacho’ Barbero (18th), Allen Kessler (10th), two-time bracelet winner Steve Zolotow (9th), two-time bracelet winner Justin Saliba (7th), bracelet winner Jonathan Cohen (5th), five-time bracelet winner Benny Glaser (4th), and Jason Mercier (3rd).
