Yes he did consider what Dwan could have. I absolutely guarantee that Ivey would think about this, I think he could be playing tired, drunk and tilting and still think about this. I think he'd find it easier to forget how to breathe than forget to put his opponent on a range. This is not an advanced concept.
Quite simply, Dwan's range is really, really wide in most spots. He's not the kind of player you're going to fold the 3rd nuts to very often because you're usually so far ahead of his range.
So why push allin if he knows Dwans range is real wide? So wide he could be sitting with the nuts? I think pushing all in he is only getting called by a better hand, i.e. the nuts. What hand would call the allin?
One of the only players I think could have got away from this would have ben Negrano
