Phil Ivey gets interviewed by Barry Greenstein on Mental Fitness and How He Got So Great at Poker

When Phil Ivey was just new to the world of poker, his humble nature and insatiable thirst to learn about the game endeared him to several other poker pros. He became fast friends with Barry Greenstein, who then introduced the budding Ivey to the "Big Game" in Las Vegas. Impressed by the lifestyle that Greenstein was living, Ivey wanted to enjoy the same level of success, and went on to build an[...]   Read more » Phil Ivey gets interviewed by Barry Greenstein on Mental Fitness and How He Got So Great at Poker

its not hard to stay awake for 24 or 36 hours and even without coffee or energy drink,but to stay awake for more then three days and to be focused on play,that I dont understand how,without drugs!no matter what amount is on table,I probably couldnt be on table for so many hours!

I would like to see Barry Greenstein in great shape and make a show like he used to do. He is a player who had a special style when i saw him on TV, but now i don't know what's happening, because i gave up ruining my brain with TV stations... where are many lies and horror news.

I would also love to see him in a show , regularly , the same as other pros of the old school and the old days , bfore the Black Friday , nostalgia show , they still are , most of them , in good or great shape , they have their good or very god results , it could be very good to see most of these pros again in a show . This HU challenge is a chanceI guess , first was Hellmuth and Esfandiari , next who knows , maybe it is Ivey one of them . Ivey is an awesome player , despite all the GTO new generation players that have appeared onthe scene , he is adored by many poker players .

Many poker players have disappeared, and i haven't watched the rest, but liked past TV episodes when professional players sometimes did shows. Phil Ivey is experienced and has a few decades to play. It is not difficult for him if he is healthy.

The interview with the great ivey is interesting, but I think that mental ability is the key to being a winner in poker, because it not only helps you when you win but when you have days of losing a lot of money, but in the long run your profitability is greater How good to hear these poker references that will help you in your future as a poker pro.

They realeased another video , on which he mentions that hand that busted him on 2003 WSOP Main Even vs Moneymaker , and Greenstein told him that he would fold the 99s if he were o n his place , on this flop QQx vs this player , this bet-bait he wouldn't bite like Ivey did , show his third 9 on the turn , shoved , but Moneymaker made with his AQ a better FH on the river , very sick hand . Now if he had folded this 99 on the flop , would anything chance in history , noone knows .

Phil Ivey lost serious hands in his life but that didn't knock him to the ground. I didn't see him very angry when he lost in the past, but other professional players like Phil Hellmuth proved that they are not gentlemen. Anyway, his career is great and will be.

I remember that ivey lost a pot of almost a million dollars with dwuan but that hand did not allow him to go to the bottom, of course it hurts to lose this amount, but when they are at a high level money is no longer a priority at the beginning, You play your game and improve and you know that the money will come in the long run, I think that was the key to being a winner.

Phil Ivey had a very rough time a few years ago when he continues to be the biggest loser with online poker. I don't know how much this affected him, because his bank accounts they suffered some damages. Anyway, recovered all dollars in my opinion.

Tom Dwan was on Poker Kings , making some videos for this site , explaining some of his past games , past hands and he was analysing his gameplay ,or he was answering to players questions . So it's logical his friend Ivey tofollow and now theya both ambassadors there . They will promote it a lot , cause the both have a lot of influence in poker circles and rooms .

These people who have become professional players demonstrated their ability to talk about poker using nice words. They progressed in playing or speaking skills and many people had to learn from them. Anyway, they teach you good things.
