Phil Ivey was one of the poker stars to have made a huge profit in this year so far. Since then Ivey has been on a $2.6 million upswing and he is currently showing a profit of $1,782,281 for 2011 so far, according to online cash game tracker highstakesdb.
Phil Ivey was already showing a healthy profit of $712,000 last week but Sunday’s action saw his year’s earning receive a super-boost after winning over $900,000 in one of his typically short sessions.
The players contributing to Phil Ivey’s bumper week-end were Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer and Daniel “jungleman12” Cates, who both took on Ivey at $30,000 capped $500/$1,000 PLO.
It took URnotINdanger2 just 130 hands and a $340,000 loss before he had enough. However, jungleman12 fought on for around 600 hands before he decided to quit around $600,000 in the hole.
