When Cole South and Gus Hansen were playing a tough H.O.R.S.E. heads-up match the other day, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius decided to join them at the table. However, neither Cole South or Hansen wanted them at the table as they wanted to move on with their heads-up.
Patrik Antonius left straight away when he understood it was a heads-up game and that they didn't want any other players at the tab[...] Read more » HighStakes: Gus Hansen's attack on Phil Ivey

in some tv shows I've seen with ivey playing, I realized that he's a little arrogant when compared to other players ... Players like him and phill Hellmut, some others do not like to play ... shall be guilty of first name? lolol

I see the issue but if its a ring table...not HU then its an open table...yeah! I think they are up them selfs if they think they can just demand others to leave the table. Gus for all his talent must see that Phil I had the upper as soon as he sat down and knew it... LOL i bet ivey was pissing him self.

they dnt have any right to ask any player to leave a table just because they want a headsup match for themselves. they cud only request and its upto the other peson to do what he wants. dnt knw why he is making a fuss about it.

Hmmmmm. Maybe the word “attack” is a bit harsh! Maybe Phil just felt that since they were playing in HIS sandbox that he had the right to stay there too. As far as the comment that Ivey seems arrogant, I know someone who once quit his job and moved to Vegas to play full time. After a year he had covered his expenses, but not a lot more, had enough of playing poker, but had rubbed shoulders with a lot of the top poker pros. His comment on them: Egotistical, smarmy, and often just not nice people. It’s easy to smile for the camera for two minutes and talk about how your organization is saving kittens and bunnies in Somalia (unless your name is Phil Hellmuth), but real life is often different.
