Phil Ivey vs. Patrik Antonius
Is it just me or do Ivey and Antonius play more interesting hands against each other than any other combo of big pros out there?
I had never seen this hand before but it is just jaw-dropping.

I am not sure if Antonius' call on the river is good. I mean, is this possibly a call because it's an exploitatively tight fold? Antonius' hand is very face-up imo and if Ivey knows Patrik is capable of folding AAA it gives him license to steal. And they play so often together. Or is it a fold because when Ivey 3bs the flop and fires so big on turn and river he can't be bluffing often especially since Antonius' hand is face up?
The tension on the river is unbearable, I wonder if Ivey is wondering if Antonius ran him down....
