Phil Ivey is extremely wealthy. He has more money than any of us could ever dream about. Beyond that, Ivey can hold his own against any poker player in the world. Well, except for Phil Galfond and Dan Cates, apparently. Ivey has, per High Stakes DB, dumped more than $5 million since Full Tilt Poker’s re-launch in 2012, using the screen name, “Polarizing.”
The greatest poker player in the world has been no match for Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond ($10.2 million loss) and Dan “Jungleman12” Cates ($6.9 million loss) since 2012. Overall, his net loss on FTP has exceeded $5 million. Prior to Black Friday in April 2011, Ivey was ahead about $19 million on FTP under his original screen name, “Phil Ivey”. Times have changed for the 8-time WSOP bracelet winner.
What Has Happened to Phil Ivey?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing has happened to Phil Ivey’s game. He’s still the game’s top player. Why has he lost so much on FTP since 2012? That’s hard to say. It could be a combination of bad luck, lack of motivation or playing games where he has no edge. That’s poker. No player can dominate every game. Not even the great Phil Ivey
Ivey has proven time and time again he’s one of the all-time greats. The results speak for themselves. Ivey has 8 WSOP bracelets, previously won $19 million on FTP and has dominated high stakes cash games and tournaments worldwide for more than a decade. Phil Ivey is a poker legend, regardless of his struggles on FTP the past couple of years.
Ivey is one of the many high stakes poker players that receive criticism from the rail. When Ivey goes through long periods without scoring a big win, fans wonder if the “Internet players” have caught up to him. No one will ever catch up to Phil Ivey. He’s that good. That’s not to say there will never be another Phil Ivey. There will. However, Phil will always end up making money at the poker tables.
