Phil Ivey is one of the poker players i most admire. I still didn't knew about this, but its great news to him! And DIN_FRU is decidin to play only against the best players, and this is what happens... perhaps he should try to play against durrrr, looks like his year is also being full of ups and a lot more downs...

Well if your going up against anyone would you choose Phil Ivey????? I know i wouldn't... But when you rate your self that highly to play in high stakes games surly that is the price you pay! If you have the Dollar to put up and play then you have the right to walk away and by the sounds of it he should have walked away long ago....
lol that happens when you get frustriated and do not go out of the table =) omg losing nearly half a million us dollars ,, some people work 10 years or more to earn so much money and he spends it on beein frustiated =) crazy world =)

Playing against Ivey with such buyin, no wonder he was hit this hard. Will surely take some time to come out of tilt, lol But i guess he will surely remember this for life and not make this mistake again.
oh now when i see it i lought a bit because i was lucking at a 10/20 € table at virgin-poker where a gay had 1000 € and beated another won with 500 € ( he always rebuyed 500! ) 13 times =) till he had i think round 7200 or somethink =) after that the one bought in 5000 and in the first hand they went all in the one with 7500 with AA and the other with K K and so he lost it all again =) that was how the luck can turn sometimes =)
