Online Poker: Phil Ivey Drops $800K

Poker Pro Back To A $2.5 Million Deficit On 2014


Over the past seven days on Full Tilt, pro gambler Phil “Polarizing” Ivey lost roughly $800,000, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. Ivey’s losses on the year are back up to around $2.5 million.

He’s down nearly $5.3 million lifetime on the site under his Polarizing screen name. His old account under his real name had profits of around $19 million, however.

Between March and May of this year, Ivey was on a huge downswing. He has managed to bounce back numerous times, but he has not been able to dig himself out of the hole.

Here’s a look at Ivey’s 2014 graph on HighstakesDB.

Here’s his graph before taking on a new screen name in the PokerStars-Full Tilt era.

Ivey was the week’s biggest loser, but the following players had great weeks: thecortster ($479,492), SanIker ($470,628), Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene ($298,628), AthaCliath ($237,197), KPR16 ($217,358) and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius ($199,081).

Joining Ivey in the loss column were: bajskorven (-$266,460), KingSp00k (-$219,591), Trueteller (-$207,373) and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom (-$201,151).

The only six-figure hand of the past week went to Mikael “punting-peddler” Thuritz. He beat Ivey by holding the 10Club Suit 9Spade Suit 8Spade Suit 7Spade Suit and getting value on a board reading 9Diamond Suit 7Heart Suit 4Diamond Suit 7Club Suit 2Spade Suit.
