Last year Phil Ivey didn't take part in the World Series of Poker because he thought it was unfair that many players couldn't afford to play after Full Tilt Poker and other poker sites were closed down on Black Friday. Even though Full Tilt Poker still hasn't paid back its players and Americans still can't play on most online poker sites, Phil Ivey still decided to make a comeback at the WSOP yesterday as he signed up for Event #2 $1,500 NLH.
But unfortunately the American pro didn't get the instant comeback success he had hoped for as he was knocked out by Maria Ho after just a few hours of play. Well, there are still many events to be played and lots of time for Phil Ivey to turn it into a successful comeback. It will be interesting to see how things turn out!
