High stakes poker pro Phil Ivey seems to have glided effortlessly into second place of top money winners at Full Tilt Poker for 2010, after accumulating $579,000 in winnings on the site last week.
Although Ivey has put in less hours than many of his fellow pros at Full Tilt Poker’s virtual felts of late, he has been devastatingly efficient with his time when he has made an appearance.
This was clearly demonstrated by last weeks effort, when he won $579,000 over a mere 1,474 hands played to take him just behind Tom Dwan on Full Tilt’s profit leaderboard for 2010.
Phil Ivey has consistently stamped his authority on high-stakes cash games over the years and his impressive $2 million profits so far demonstrates his continuing domination of the online game which has seen him clock up seven digit wins each year on the site. According to HighStakesDB statistics, Phil Ivey earned $1.99 million on FullTilt in 2007, $7.34 million in 2008, and $6.33 million in 2009.
Now with the WSOP 2010 scheduled to get underway in just over a week’s time, 7 times bracelet winner Phil Ivey will surely be devoting more of his time to picking up more titles at the prestigious event. Ivey will not only be looking to further solidify his position at the top of the world all-time tournament poker money list, where he currently lies with $12,829,989 in winnings, but there is also the little matter of a prop bet.
