2005 WSOP Event #27: $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha (with Rebuys)

, 2005-07-05, by Mercy

Submitted by: Ozone

A tough field of 134 poker players came together for the prestigious $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha with re-buys event. When it was all over, young poker phenom Phil Ivey was the last man standing.

Many consider Ivey to be the best all around player in the world today, and he helped solidify that argument by winning his 5th career bracelet while still in his 20s. Ivey was awarded $630,685 after fighting his way through the monumental final table.

Robert Williamson III, who was making his 4th straight final table in this event, finished 2nd and won $350,380. Allen Cunningham, making his 3rd final table of this year's WSOP, finished 4th to win $140,150. Keeping with the theme of a star-studded final table, poker legend Phil Hellmuth was knocked out in 8th place after making his 2nd final table appearance of this year's WSOP.

Five of the nine final table participants were former gold bracelet winners with an overwhelming 20 championships shared between them. Only 28 years old, Phil Ivey became the youngest player to reach 5 career gold bracelets. The future looks bright for this young poker superstar.
