So I'm trying to make this a weekly feature on FCP and when the week is over the thread will be closed and moved to Player Profiles so you can read them whenever. Remember, keep the chit chat to a minimum and make your questions short and sweet. Ask me about Ivey...

Have you ever seen him tilt? He seems to have a very flat emotional style, I wonder how much this is just his natural state and how much it is self control at the table.

When you Ivey, Juanda and Cunningham all started out at about the same time did you think that it would be Ivey who would end up being considered the best ?

That's the amazing thing about Phil. When we were younger he was the most likely to tilt because he has such a wild and aggressive style, especially in Stud. In the last five years, though, the guy just doesn't tilt in poker anymore. If he feels like he's not "all there" he'll often play for like 15 minutes and then just quit and go do something else.

He is probably the biggest regular gambler in the world and almost certainly the biggest gambler in Vegas. I won't touch on amounts, but it's A LOT.

I think he'll be fine. If he ever had to go back to "work" he could do it.

In poker, nobody ever really wins, because it's never really over

We all felt that Allen was the most knowledgeable about poker and knew all the right answers to the puzzles. Juanda was the most disciplined back then, Ivey was the wildest and most raw, but I thought I'd be the best of the group. Having said that, Juanda didn't think Ivey was going to make it, but I knew he'd make it for sure. I saw loads of talent in him and saw drive in his eyes.

You have regarded Phil as the best player in the world, and most people say that Chip Reese was the best of all time. How far do you think Phil is away from catching Chip of that title? In what games and areas of poker is Phil better and what games and areas does he have to improve to become the best of all time in your opinion?

Hmmm... I think if I had to pick one game to play him heads up I would choose Omaha HL first and limit hold'em second. He is great at both, but I think Omaha HL might be his worst game.

Yeah I'd say so. He certainly became the hardest worker in poker when he went broke.
