Phil Ivey could not catch a break on Day 8 and when he did, he mucked the winning hand. In the sure-to-be-legendary hand in question, Phil Ivey opened pocket eights from under-the-gun for 320,000. The action folded around to Jordan Smith, who three-bet to 1,000,000 straight from the big blind. Ivey called and they saw a Qh Ts 5s flop. Both players checked and the Qs fell on the turn. Check-check again. The river was the As, check-check a third time. Smith opened up his Ad 9c for aces up, but Ivey mucked his spade flush, clearly not realizing he held the 8s.
