Phil Ivey $1.8m In Profit At Full Tilt For 2011

Poker legend Phil Ivey had a slow start to the year and was down almost $800,000 at the beginning of February before his poker mojo kicked into gear once more.
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.
While Ivey was clearing up on Full Tilt’s virtual felts, railbirds were having a field day watching the action with most of them agreeing that playing against Ivey was a negative EV proposition. As forum poster Clasiko put it:
“It’s dummy playing against Ivey, because you don’t have an edge and is semi impossible extract too much money from him: when he is running bad he simply stand up and game over. Another mistake is multi-tabling (like jungle) against different world class player, when Ivey is only in one, analysing and exploiting your leaks.”
Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to stop the pros seeking Ivey out for some action and even talented 21 year old “kagome kagome,”formely known as “IHateJuice,” finds himself down $1,413,437 this year mostly thanks to his constant locking horns with Ivey.
On the other hand, since 2007 Phil Ivey’s life time cash earnings at Full Tilt has almost reached the $20 million mark.
