ok ok so read this line carefully: "Of course, just like most normal humans, Phil Ivey actually used to be super bad at playing poker "... i though it's only me who is a sh1tty poker player, but this information kinda makes me feel like a normal human.

I'll bet that I'm worse than Pochui, and I'm not even close to a normal human.

I think he had more chances on getting paid from the tournament, than getting something
back from that case with the casino, which seems still open.
I wonder why he is keep chasing this one.
He could have made lots more, by playing poker all this time.

Yes phil ivey is a real legend at poker world and he has won bery big money in his career and this is what he lives from- a professional gambler, and also we see that he plays not only poker but many games in a casino, I think he is just very good player in anything that has risk.

I do like to read about the back stories of these great players. Phil Ivey is widely regarded as the finest poker player in the world and he looks to have worked very hard to get there

How hard poker players needed to work, to reach where they are right now?
In comparison with some other like federer which won in tennis once more.
There, i can see the hard work that needs to be done.
Not to mention that, the age plays a far more serious role.
He had to win lots of younger players, with better stamina for example.
And what do poker players do? Just sitting on a chair Smile

Off course, Phil Ivey was one of the best and popular poker pros ever, but i don´t hear nothing about him in the last years. After the FullTilt "Black Day" he have no big support in my opinion. But i wish im good luck for the future for a "comeback".

Everyone has its time. His probably is over when it comes playing poker and winning big.
Cause if that was the case, he wouldnt have stayed out of this wsop, chasing a lost case
with the casino.
He can surely afford the buy in for the wsop, unlike so many others.

Maybe he did not get big wins in poker tournaments, but he recently often becomes a provider of news about offline winnings in the casino ..... and in the casino get a win it seems to me much more difficult than when you play against the players .....

Has won millions $ live and online. Is a very good professional player. This year has come in Poker Hall of Fame. No one has been professional since the beginning. This means that you can also become a professional player. Buy materials about the game you learn much better and in 8 years maybe you will become a professional players with few millions $ profit. Agree
