Monte Carlo Millions Ivey vs Jackson heads up bluff-fest

It's a classic. In the Monte Carlo Millions evet Phil Ivey has Qh8h and raises the SB limper who calls with 6s5d. Flop comes 7cJcJh. Phil leads, gets raised, re-raises, gets re-re-raised, then shoves.

Just found an article which does commentary on the thought process behind Phil's actions. When I first saw this hand I was more inclined to think it was just a pissing match but I can see what the article is saying about how Phil (correctly) but his opponent on a range of hands that how he could take it away from him. Still think that Jackson could have possibly won if he had shoved instead of min-re-raised for the fourth bet.
