The Ivey Room, a new poker room for high stakes poker games, opened up at Aria Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas last weekend. As you probably already have figure out the poker room has borrowed the name of the world's most successful poker player, Phil Ivey. The Ivey Room celebrated its opening by having a $1,000,000 VIP tournament where the player who knocked out Phil Ivey got $100,000. The winner of the tournament got the chance to play a heads-up against Phil Ivey for $250,000.
Chino Reem was the one who knocked out Phil Ivey from the tournament, and Larry Litton won the tournament and got to play against Phil Ivey. However, he didn't manage to beat Phil Ivey heads up. We will probably hear a lot more about The Ivey Room during the 2010 WSOP.
