Phil Ivey teaching the world to win at poker? Count us in.

Thursday, 24 March 2011

We all know that Phil Ivey isn’t the most extroverted type, which is probably part of his appeal as the silent and mysterious man who crushes the biggest games around in an unprecedented manner. So when we found out that he had opened a Twitter account, we were pretty surprised.

Also, sceptical. Turns out though that @philivey is the real deal and has even had his account verified by Twitter. One of his Tweets mentioned Ivey’s “next big project” details of which are slowly slipping out – go to and you find a frankly badass banner and smoking name with the teasing line: “Now I’m going to teach the whole world how to win at poker.”

Several thoughts – firstly, if Ivey is teaching people to win at poker then we’re in. So is everyone else though, so secondly this could completely destroy the game of poker. Thirdly, we imagine thousands of people will be disappointed to learn that Ivey doesn’t have some undiscovered poker technique or secret, he just works damn hard.
