Poker icon Phil Ivey won $441,380 over a two day period after 835 hands were played in six different sessions concluding on Tuesday.
Most of his winnings on Tuesday came during a session played in the late morning at the $1,500/$3,000 8-game tables, according to PokerNews.
Ivey has had a bit of a rocky start to the year, which was recently made worse by a lawsuit filed on behalf of the Borgata Casinoseeking the return of $9.6 million. The Atlantic City casino accuses Ivey of cheating during sessions of baccarat.
