Phil Ivey and I...

Saturday, 19 September 2009

Not only did Phil Ivey rock up most fashionably late, but within only moments of sitting down he had more than doubled-up. Then, shortly after the beginning of level five Ivey’s table was broken up and, as he looked for his new seat, he stopped and looked at me, obviously deducing that I looked like a knowledgeable and cool kind of guy and asked ‘Do you know where table 16 is?’

Instead of being like Ohhhhhh my gooddddd Phil Ivey just spoke to me, I calmly said ‘yes I do –it’s over there Phil, good luck’

‘Thanks’ he said, and as he turned away and walked towards his new table I whispered;

‘Hey Phil, maybe when this tournament is over we could hit the town together, maybe check out a hip-hop joint, bounce with some honeys , waddya say?’

‘Sure’, he said. ‘Come find me after Jesse, you da man’

‘No you da man Phil’, I snapped back as he walked away – and as I do so he turns, gives me the gun point and says ‘no doubt’.

Ok I made most of that up, but whatever it could've of happened. On a more truthful note; I spotted Chris Ferguson, who currently sits with the chip lead of 19K, reading Bluff Europe magazine – not only is he a great poker player but the guy also has taste! Nice.

In other news – James Akenhead, John Tabatabai and Antonio Esfandiari all busted out early, and more recently Live Boeree hit the rail. Ferguson leads, with Ivey not too far behind. Go Phil Ferguson!
