| G'day mates|
Well I respect Phil Ivey as a poker player but find him to be very arrogant.
Arrogance is something I do NOT like in a person.
Every human being is just a good as any other.
We all have our own strength's and weaknesses.
We all have worth and deserve to be respected until such time as we lose that respect through our actions. Phil to me has come across as arrogant at times.
Still wish him well as a player.
Be cool mates and all the best to us all.

| Ivey showing again what he's made of, nice to see. This wasn't a very big tourney, but that shouldn't be taken in consideration, as there was a bracelet in game and every pros who fight for those should have thought about that before deciding to either enter or not to this event. The money prize wouldn't pick much pros attention, taking in consideration the costs of the travel and stay, but the bracelet made all the difference. Ivey decided to went there and he made the best decision, as he happen to won the bracelet!|

| Congratulations to Phil, he showed once again that he really master any type of poker |
If you consider his age i think he has good chances to take at least the second place on that list or even 1st

| Congratzz for Phil. I have no doubt that he will eventually take over the lead for most bracelets ever. Though the field he beat was like 81 people which isn't bad but its not really that impressive either. I'll take nothing for Phil Ivey this time but he really needs to start winning bigger fields if he doesn't want an asterisk next to his name...grande IvY|
