Ivey to launch site
Tuesday, 30 October 2012
Phil Ivey has been keeping his options open since leaving the Full Tilt fold and hasn’t rushed into putting his name to another site. Undoubtedly he’s had numerous offers and many in the community thought he might opt to join the world’s biggest site: PokerStars.
However, no sponsorship deals have piqued his interest: until now. The world’s best player will now represent IveyPoker.com, a site dedicated to training aspiring players in the ways of Mr. Ivey.
The site is currently under construction and the information available is scant, but already Ocotober-Niner Greg Merson has been signed-up to represent the site.
While many have speculated that the site will be a poker room – something which there is certainly potential for it to become in the future – a recent interview with ESPN’s Zach McCann revealed that it will be a new training site.
Speaking to McCann, Ivey said: “I think a lot of people really don’t know how to play poker, and I think this is going to be an opportunity to play with the best players in the world.”
Also joining Ivey on the site will be former Full Tilt buddies, Patrik Antonius and Jennifer Harman.
When the site will launch and exactly what it will contain is unknown, but if it’s got Phil Ivey’s name on it then it will certainly attract a lot of interest.
