Phil Ivey has been spotted playing a tournament last week at the 2019 WSOP, and to make things more interesting, he’s at the same table with his namesake, Phil Hellmuth.
How would you feel if you’re sandwiched between two great poker pros, a 10-time and a 15-time WSOP bracelet winner?
Ivey and Hellmuth joined in on Event #18: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, an event that ran from June 6 to June 9. A total of 183 players entered, building a prize pool worth $1.72 million.
Ivey was one of those who late registered into Day 2, and his return to the WSOP for the first time (in a long time) had certainly made every poker fan excited. However, that excitement was short-lived as Ivey was not among the top 23 players who were able to bag up chips at the end of the day.
Being able to play with these two legendary poker pros would be a thrill for most poker pros, and the lucky one who was sandwiched between them at one point was Jeremy Heartberg.

Heartberg was enjoying the limelight, but failed to cash in on the event.
