Phil Ivey Interview

Had never seen this, nor do I know when it was done.....funny, he's also patchless:

Phil Ivey Website

I don't know if this was there before his statement, but check out Phil's website.

He's going to teach us all how to win at poker!

Ever since Phil's statement came out, there's been a ton of talk regarding how self serving it was, and that it marked the final nail in FullTilt's coffin, yada yada yada....what did you expect? Phil is the franchise. Period. And he's not going down with that sinking ship, no way, no how.

He's worked very hard to achieve his stature, and his actions should be no surprise to anyone. Least of all to the morons who run FullTilt poker. Funny how these bozo's don't say anything significant regarding the player cashouts, but yet in record time, respond to Ivey's statement.

I hope they all get just what's coming to them....and let's pray that the vaseline gets thrown out in the process.

WSOP live events

Kinda cool....but not quite the production I thought it would be.

By the way, been noticing some weird play by some of these final table players....but, since when do you call a bet on the river, and instead of waiting for your opponent to table his hand, you go ahead and show your hand, only to see the better fold without showing?

Buddy, if I'm calling, you bet your ass your showing your cards!

Figure I'd start early!


FullTilt 'RONNIES' Response to Ivey

From Poker News

This drama's script continues to evolve. Hollywood should take notice, it will make a nice movie, especially wants the complete dirty laundry is aired!

Phil Ivey says it all....

Here's a link to the filing:



May 30, 2011

For many years, I have been proud to call myself a poker player. This great sport has taken me to places I only imagined going and I have been blessed with much success. It is therefore with deep regret that I believe I am compelled to release the following statement.

I am deeply disappointed and embarrassed that Full Tilt players have not been paid money they are owed. I am equally embarrassed that as a result many players cannot compete in tournaments and have suffered economic harm. I am not playing in the World Series of Poker as I do not believe it is fair that I compete when others cannot. I am doing everything I can to seek a solution to the problem as quickly as possible.

My name and reputation have been dragged through the mud, through the inactivity and indecision of others and on behalf of all poker players I refuse to remain silent any longer. I have electronically filed a lawsuit against Tiltware related to the unsettled player accounts. As I am sure the public can imagine, this was not an easy decision for me.

I wholeheartedly refuse to accept non-action as to repayment of players funds and I am angered that people who have supported me throughout my career have been treated so poorly.

I sincerely hope this statement will ignite those capable of resolving the problems into immediate action and would like to clarify that until a solution is reached that cements the security of all players, both US and International, I will, as I have for the last six weeks, dedicate the entirety of my time and efforts to finding a solution for those who have been wronged by the painfully slow process of repayment.
