Phil Ivey Back Playing At Full Tilt Poker

Phil Ivey Back Playing At Full Tilt PokerAfter April last year when the Black Friday indictments forced Full Tilt  offline, Phil Ivey had to take his online custom elsewhere and ended up at PokerStars’ cash tables. Subsequently, Ivey went $629k in profit and then down by $224k before eventually finishing in the red by -$57,384 over 62,411 hands played.
With Full Tilt’s relaunch, however, and despite past acrimony related to the $150 million lawsuit Ivey threatened the poker room with, the 36 year-old is now back playing at his previous online home Full Tilt. Things have changed slightly, though, as the player with the most famous name in poker is now playing under the screen name “Polarizing.”
What hasn’t changed is Ivey’s winning ways and the 8 times WSOP bracelet winner is currently showing a profit of $114,000 according to tracking site HighstakesDB. Added to his past winning on the site, Phil Ivey has amassed a total of $19,242,744 at Full Tilt making him far and away online poker’s biggest ever winner.
Ivey’s presence on the site has already created a great deal of excitement as railbirds look forward to the top pro locking horns against Full Tilt’s team of sponsored ‘professionals’ consisting of Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan and Viktor Blom. Nevertheless, in spite of the increase in high-stakes action, sharks on the site may have to get used to seeing a fall in their profits as Ivey helps himself to an ever bigger slice of the Full Tilt pie.
The good news, however, is that they may soon have the opportunity to redress the balance by gaining some unique insights into his game. Only recently Ivey set-up an online training website called, and as he explains:
“A lot of that [reading players] comes with experience, but a lot of it can be taught as well. A lot of my feel comes from observing other players, so at, I’m going to teach people how to observe other players and do it in the correct way. I’m going to teach them how to make adjustments off the things they observe. I think I can teach some of it, but a lot of it does come with experience, so if people put in their work, they can get there one day.”
