Phil Ivey is the stone cold nuts
Phil Ivey, my favorite poker player, won his sixth World Series of Poker bracelet in the no limit deuce to seven lowball event Thursday night.
The prize money was $96,000, but that money meant relatively little to him, as he had prop bets out on him winning a bracelet-- he won at least $3 million in prop bets from the winning.
The picture shows here he took his 96k winnings and sat it on the floor. Reports said he tipped the whole 96k to the dealers, but this is unconfirmed as of this moment.
