Default Phil Ivey - Best player to never WIN !!

I,m sick of so many Phil Ivey fans !! He,s like a golfer who never won a major. He has made the final table at so many WPT events to his credit but he never wins. He always craps out at the final tables. !!

It's only because he gets tired and acts like he wants to go home. He almost had a title but he went all in with a pair of deuces. Pretty sad to pull the trigger on that hand but hey I guess if you got the cash rings don't matter to him much. I know I'd be happy with a roll like Iveys no ring needed with that.

Default Phil Ivey

Phil has 5 WSOP bracelets and 24 money finishes. His highest finish in the main event is 10th, in 2003. He has 1 WPT final table with 1 WPT money finishes. But Ivey is not a Tournament player, mainly he is a cash game player. So for a cash gamer to have 5 WSOP bracelets is impressive. I like Ivey so I might be bias.

tournaments nowadays are so overrated.......most of it is......lets see who can get lucky today.......and when it comes down to it.........its one big lottery........the pros like ivey are just like people with more they have a better chance to win.......but it doesnt mean that they will........his cash game stats are second to none though.....sure he's the golfer that never won a major...........if the major has 10,000 entrants........he'd still be the golfer on the top of the money list though............what other poker player you know has a Mercedes McLaren, those run for like 415K or so.......................KP
