lol at least now phil ivey can now claim that he played the largest pot in televise poker have ever seen. i would have said both played very well and against heads up its barely possible to lay down 2nd nuts on the turn ^^

its the loose aggressive nature of durrrr that helps him win some of the biggest pots against good opponents. can't wait to watch this hand on tv

When you feel the game, there's no difference between playing with pot 1000 and 1000000 $ Big Smile
