"What is IveyPoker? Is it another scam?" Exclaims Tony G

"What is IveyPoker? Is it another scam?" Exclaims Tony GTony G is well known for his caustic, bullying outbursts during poker games. Who could forget his verbal assault on Russian Ralph Perry, who he lambasted for being  “a terrible player” or Andy Robl, whom he labelled “a shameful example of a modern internet player.”
Of course, Tony G’s rants are not taking lightly by all players and during one such incident outspoken UK pro Dave “Devilfish” Ulliot retorted; “the sooner they drag you back in the f****** water the better, you f****** fat idiot.”
Nevertheless, little has happened to slow Tony G’s tirades down over the years and the latest instance has occurred during a recording of the PartyPoker Big Game VII. This time around his ire was directed at the UK’s Toby Lewis, who also happens to be a member of IveyPoker pro.
Apparently, during one round of the €25/50 cash game Toby Lewis backed out of raising the action with a straddle, which was enough to set Tony G off.
“What are you doing? What’s going on? There are no scammers here. You’re a disgrace. You should get your chips, get up and leave,” exclaimed G before turning his attention to PartyPoker PR man Warren Lush, and commenting: “He’s a disgrace. Where do you get these jerks? Where are these nits from.”
Despite Toby Lewis looking somewhat embarrassed, the loud-mouthed poker pro was not content to leave it there, and then took the opportunity to rope Lewis’ latest sponsor, IveyPoker, into the rant.
“What is IveyPoker? Is it another scam? Ivey is a gambler; you can’t put that logo on. You are representing a brand that’s all about gambling and giving people a chance. He’s saving his €100 for the bus fare home,” said G.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Australian Airbag’ has launched into Phil Ivey, either, and during the Full Tilt debacle the 39 year old called Ivey “beyond low” and “the first rat to jump off the sinking ship.”
Despite all the heated words, PartyPoker PR man Warren Lush dismissed the incident as entertaining television and explained: “We have no shame here. You’re not going to see the Global Poker Index top ten players at these tables. We want players who are good for television.”
