High Stakes Private Jet Game sees Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey as Big Losers

It sure is a great opportunity not to be missed for Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey when they were invited to a super high-stakes game onboard a private jet with a recreational player, but the rec is no ordinary amateur as it turned out to be Tony G!

The pair of poker legends just got off the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party in the Bahamas, and this time aboard a private jet they headed to the native country of Tony G (Antanas Guoga), Lithuania, where the poker pro/businessman has spent the past five years as a politician.

While Triton Poker co-founder Paul Phua was initially taking a rest for the long flight to Vilnius, the trio decided to play a few short deck sessions to keep them occupied - a 5+ version of both NLHE and PLO, with a $127,000 buy-in!


After the private jet game, they continued the juicy poker action at the Casino Olympic Vilnius, where high stakes specialist Danny Tang had also joined in on the fun.

Tony G said, "Paul has helped me fall in love with poker again...Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey are both super-special and super-talented. They are the older generation of poker at this point and, like fine wine, they get better with age and are a lot of fun to play with."

Here is a game of poker between professional players, who have no retention fee from any casino and that has definitely been played jokingly. There are some laws, that do not allow these games to be played by anyone and everywhere. Is just for fun.

you can imagine that situation,to be like them,to have fun and even to play poker in airplane and not to regret if you lose something!that is something that you can say,how they enjoy in life!after so many years of playing poker,they still love to do it and to have fun in same time!

good old Tony G. God love him.

Just to think about how much money these guys must have, to be able to do something like this, is crazy. I mean, this would have cost more money then some people make in 10 years!

Anyway, I can't blame them! If I had the money I probably would be doing things like this as well. And good one from Tony G!

I don't think they play real on the plane or elsewhere. My opinion is that: they try sometimes to attract people into this industry and organizes certain poker games, that are played in the joke, but for the public opinion is reported as a official game. They cannot do these things, because there is a law, related to the activity in the field of gambling and these players they have no license to play.

I think there are alot of "friendly" backroom deals. This is entertainment. And its gobbled up by the masses. There are also alot of these deals that go sour and when that happens to others its unfortunate, but that is also very real. They are playing real poker. If there is anything fake about it it just adds to the mystery imo.

I know they are professional players but they are not licensed to play poker on a plane. At this thing i referred. I'm not interested in where they play but he must be an organizer and of course the commissions paid to him. There, i don't know if it was.
 Nightkid08/12/2019 10:33:38 GMT
Well the point is that they did not say many things, but in the end we do not know how everything happened or how everything was organized in the plane, only the details of the news are known some details nothing but good that is sometimes the rest that to imagination or to get each his idea Confused Confused Confused

If you are sick with the game, then you play anywhere and with any buy ins.
And of course for these players the buy in wasnt a problem.
Quite some time, to hear about tony g playing poker.
It looks like being a politician doesnt permits him to gamble away Smile

When you have so much money and some friend have airplane,then why not to play for big money,when you fly?whats a difference to play in house,casino and airplane!this player just love poker and dont care where they will play!
 CALICUL08/12/2019 23:04:24 GMT
I sit and wonder: what the law says about it. It is possible that when you have crossed the country borders, to be allowed to play without any restrictions, or maybe not. I do not know these details, but they know better about the places where they can organize a poker game.

It's a fun game between friends on small change Smile.
I guess money don't mean to them what it does to me...
 Plexo10/12/2019 14:14:43 GMT
I want to buy a ticket on that airplane Smile
I think it should be fun playing poker on the sky with neither taxes nor casino fees.
Although I would not like to have pocket aces meanwhile a big turbulence is going on Smile
Also, I feel more confortable playing on microstakes, so economy class form me please.
