Phil Ivey - In his own words about the second place finish in Aussie Millions and being on top of the all time money list .
"It's just another poker game. I don't think I'll celebrate too much. I'm just going to go to dinner, maybe have a glass of wine or two and play some poker later"
"I don't really think, ‘oh I'm the best in the world. I just try to perform the best that I can day in and day out."
