Interview with Phil Ivey

Posted on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 by "T".
It's not very often that Phil Ivey has the time or wants to sit down for a "proper interview". In fact, it took about 3 years until WSOP's Nollan Dalla was invited over to Ivey's private trailer in the parking lot aside the mammoth tournament area at the Rio for a seocnd one-on-one interview with the world's best poker player. In the interview, Phil said that he's happy to have made it to 5 final[...]   Read more » Interview with Phil Ivey

Someone forget to ask Mr Ivey about my/our money in FTP. He is go to play a one million buy-in MTT while he got around 40 millions of FTP money. Nice. We staked him. Nice again.

'It's not really like i'm Tom Cruise' - not a complete tool in other words.

I think what he said about his poker mindset is very interesting - he thinks about it all the time mostly. When your unconcious is thinking about such a focused subject it is great for your game.

I'm glad he didn't win the One Drop, not because of the FTP issue but because its nice to have another name to mention alot.

Although he talks about One Drop experience as being a life time experience, i would like to hear him saying something more about it, like if he played usual hands in a diferente way just because of the values that were involved, or, on the other side, if he decided to play more or less pocket hands than he usually does. And 5 final tables at one WSOP is also a record, although a pro like Ivey would always prefer to have won at least one of this instead of reaching the 5 FT without winning any.

i think most of players that took part in the one drop feel special about it- even those venture fund managers- this was a special event, maybe it will become regular, then the special feeling will fade over time, but this tourney has made the poker history, and this is special
