the most stupid (and lame) bet ivey had ever done, 3 weeks is really nothing (and its not even bbq-season). and it is also lame that ivey wanted 2 million first. i mean is there any person on the planet who couldn't do this (if he needs money)? it has nothing to do with a strong will or special skills. this just shows that ivey has way too much money, he makes bets and willingly loses them. and if he had won the bet there would be nothing interesting about it (well this is at least a funny outcome)
