He's one of the most high profile poker players in the world and after severing his ties with Full Tilt, Phil Ivey is now embarking on his next sponsorship venture.
While many thought there might be a place for him on the PokerStars platform, it seems as though Phil had other ideas and has decided to launch his own poker site.
IveyPoker.com is the web address for the high stakes star's new venture; however, aside from a few links to his social network profiles there's little information on what the site will actually be.
Currently under construction, interested visitors can opt to join the site's mailing list and be informed when the grand unveiling is going to take place.
The scant information available on the site hasn't stopped the creators signing Greg Merson as one of their representatives. Merson will wear the site's colours at the WSOP final table which begins later today.

WOW...whatever it sounds like this could prove quite interesting seeing the poker pros venture into new spheres of life to make money on the back of their success at the tables,. Sounds a bit like what Phil Hellmuth did so lets watch and see what goes down!

I Still haven’t seen any of the WSOP final table action to see what will be the colours of Ivey’s poker site. At first, this may seem a crazy bet from the poker pro, creating a new site wanting to run against all of those who are already in this market and that have consistent power and experience. But, thinking again, perhaps he is able to bet on calling a different type of public to his rooms, that’s the only way I can think of to try to see him having a space in this profitable market. It’s not just opening and offering, is about having a good offer, or else it will dye fast.

Speaking to Zach McCann, Ivey explained that he'd seen a gap in the market and he's looking to teach "people how to become winning poker players".
Joined by Patrik Antonius, Jennifer Harman and WSOP finalist Greg Merson, Ivey will be holding discussions and answering questions on how to play live and "how to observe others".
Ivey also indicated that people will be able to play on the site, stating:
"It's going to be a place where people can play socially. There's going to be no charge."
This would seemingly indicate that there is potential for a real money site to evolve out of the venture if US regulation is ever past.
During the interview Ivey was also asked about Full Tilt and, while declining to comment at present because of legal ramifications, he did say: "when the time is right – and it should be soon – I look forward to all the questions."

Sound nice, Ivey was the best poker player from Full Tult Poker (that is my opinion) when he won pot with five 00000 some players don't imagine to play at that high stakes, i will register on IveyPoker.com just for curiosity and why not when the site will have a platform i'll play, even just for fun
