Phil Ivey has quietly managed to shoot past others and reach the top of the standings this year. How this went unnoticed by so many players is up for debate, but he has learnt better than most that any new poker players should spend time practising on video poker in the section at a UK online casino
After dropping $1.19 million just a couple of weeks ago, Ivey bounced back like very, very few in the game could manage.He picked up over $1,660,000 in the past week to push his year-to-date total to $3,801,602 versus Dwan’s $3,753,591.
A majority of Ivey’s winnings come from one other player: Gus Hansen, who handed over a million dollars to the guy nicknamed “The Tiger Woods Of Poker” by people who apparently forgot that Tiger Woods went and slept with a bunch of woe, ruined his marriage and basically has to just quietly try to win back the respect of his fans. Dwan and Hansen both have been bleeding chips and cash left and right over the last few months. Back in April, Dwan was over the $6.6 million mark and has dropped dramatically sense to his current standings. Hansen, while not dropping as precipitously, has lost over two million himself.
This year’s number aside, $19,500,000 in winnings over his online poker career means that Phil Ivey is going to stand tall and proud for some time to come.
