Ivey is still a chip leader of the Poker Players Championship
Phil Ivey continues to lead the $50K Poker Players Championship at the WSOP 2019. At the end of the fourth game day, the guy remains being a chip leader and has high chances to get the 11th gold bracelet in his career. In order to win, Phil needs to beat 12 players, who are also fighting for the trophy.
Traditionally, the strongest players from the USA reach the final of the tournament, and this year is no exception. In addition to Ivey, there are still seven bracelet owners in the game and some of them have recorded more than one such award. Shaun Deeb has got four WSOP bracelets and is currently third on the stack.

Another poker professional Dan Cates is also fighting for the victory in the given event. However, Jungleman seems to be little unsure of himself and asks his Twitter followers for extra magic to win the tournament:
Made cash of final 12 of 50k @wsop 8game tournament. If anyone has any extra magic laying around I’ll take it— Daniel Cates (@junglemandan) 27 июня 2019 г.
Of course, it’s a sort of joking but who knows, maybe the player has a sense of uncertainty indeed since the battle for the first place promises to be challenging.
