I smile when I see Phil like this. Ivey is just so composed, he’s so controlled and he looks at poker so seriously he just deserves this 8th bracelet. Whoever thinks he won’t be up there with the likes of Johnny Chan, Phil Hellmuth and Doyle Brunson in the bracelet-race is a complete moron.
HTML clipboardHigh Stakes Poker Season has just started on GSN with spectacular action. Phil Ivey hasn’t been involved yet, but he will show up in upcoming episodes. He has been on HSP before though, and one of the more interesting hands he played against “Yukon” Brad Booth. Despite the outcome, most experts on poker hand evaluations would agree that Ivey made the correct play and that Booth played like a maniac. See for yourselves:
LOL Excellent video of Dave “The Devilfish” Ulliot interviewing my main man Phil Ivey about what it takes to become a successful poker pro, but also mentions a Golden Nugget Craps loss of about a million bucks Phil had…
Phil’s a gambler — but he’s a winner too. Don’t get inspired without the skills people!
I’m shaking my way through a bluff…
At least when you are playing at an online casino no one can see you cringe or pray to Lady Luck. If you can’t bluff then stick to video poker, that’s my advice.
Just because you are playing online doesn’t mean that you can abandon one the most important skills a poker player needs. Bluffing is where tournaments are won or lost.
In this interview by Poker Superstars, Phil Ivey looks completely himself — and relaxed. He’s making sense — and I suggest you LISTEN to the man in this one.
A little quote I feel is typical to Phil:
“A lot of players I play with, when they’re losing they play really really terrible. When the guy is winning, I might quit like a few hours. Another night, when the guy is losing, I might play for two days. You know, it all depends.”
You’re right, Phil.
The ever so sexy Kimberly Lansing interviewing our man Phil Ivey at the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio for worldpokertour.com. All the time during this interview, I can just feel Phil thinking: “damn, this Kimberly woman looks FINE!”.
Anyway, your basic WPT interview, but this time with a goodlooking interviewer. WIN WIN SITUATION BABY!
(oh and yes, Phil Ivey had the chip lead )
“The Poker Brat Phil Hellmuth talks about losing over half a million dollars to the ever so lucky Phil Ivey in a chinese poker game playing for one (and later on two) thousand dollars per point. Now, anyone who knows the game of Chinese poker a tiny bit knows that’s a huge amount of cash to be playing chinese for — resulting in Phil pretty much offloading a house there…”
Got to love Phil’s bet on the flop there… David Layani slowplays his AA and gets hammered by Phil Ivey from the flop on…
Commentator has it right: “There’s two leagues in the world of poker. There’s the professional level, and there’s the IVEY LEAGUE”. He’s so right.
Lots of risk by Ivey, but played to perfection.
Phil plays pocket kings against Jerry Fitt who holds J9 suited. The flop gives Ivey quad kings — but means two pair for Jerry. Both players check, but on the turn Jerry check-raises Ivey… The river fill Jerry up, and obviously Ivey easily shoves it all-in…
An expert fold by Jerry Fitt — excellent play by Phil, unlucky not getting payed off though…
