how true if true is this story?Hang around Vegas a while and you'll hear many tales of luxurious excess, though few can rival this Phil Ivey anecdote we heard moments ago.Allegedly a group of businessmen were enjoying dinner at the Wynn when they looked over at one of the nearby tables to see none other than Phil Ivey.Big fans of the poker superstar, they summoned the waiter and asked him to send Ivey a bottle of Cristal champagne, compliments of their table.Happy with their deed, they went back to tucking into their top-class steaks.Twenty minutes later, the waiter came back...armed with five bottles of Cristal!"These are for you, courtesy of Mr. Ivey."The businessmen were impressed. These bottles were selling at four or five hundred bucks a pop so $2.5k's worth of top class champagne was a very generous gesture.They felt like they still wanted to send a message to Ivey that they were big fans of his though and took the waiter aside for a word."Would you have twenty bottles of Cristal delivered to Mr Ivey please?"The waiter raised his eyebrows just a notch but took the order, made arrangements and twenty bottles of Cristal were sent over to the poker legend.If you four-bet Ivey, don't be suprised if he 5-bet shoves! The businessmen were satisfied that their point had been made and went back to talking about stocks, shares and of course cracking open a few of the five bottles of champagne stocking their table.Some time later, they noticed a group of staff approaching their table.They watched with ever increasing disbelief as bottle after bottle after bottle of Cristal was unloaded until their table and surrounding area were filled with no less than 200 bottles of the vintage champagne - retailing at approximately $100k!When the delivery had been made the waiter passed the awestruck businessmen a note."This is from Mr Ivey sirs."As the waiter walked away they all crowded round to read the note.It simply said, "...and I won't stop."That's why Phil Ivey is the Cristal Balla!
Close, but they got the details wrong:Rich dude at club send 10 bottles of Champagne over to Ivey's table.Ivey sends back 20 bottles.Rich billionaire guy sends back 30 bottles.Ivey sends 40 bottles.Rich guy sends 50 bottles.Ivey sends 80 bottles.Rich guy quits. Everyone in the whole club has a bottle of champagne in their hand. The next day Ivey's hosts at the casino call and say, "Ivey what did you do!!! You know we have to pay for all that!!!" He goes, "Oh well, I can play craps somewhere else..." HAHA classic.

Moral of the story:If you cannot afford the 5 bottles of Cristal for your table, just find where Phil Ivey is sitting and send him over a bottle and the universe will take care of things.

If Ivey had to start all over again... No craps, no gambling.... only $10,000 to live on, no car, must pay rent and bills.... do you think he could honestly do it? Without any favors from casinos called in...

Great feature, but do you think Phil would be pissed if he knew you were sharing stories about him?But since you are dishing, have you ever seen Phil show anyone mercy at the table? Like not taking all of some fish's stack near the bubble when he has the nuts. I think I know the answer but curious nonetheless.Also, does Phil have a stance on climate change? Would you classify him as a liberal or a conservative, or no real political affiliation?This is a great thread idea you have introduced btw.
"In the language typical of an IPCC report, one might say that the radiative forcing created by Climategate and Glaciergate strongly suggest this is very likely to bring about cataclysmic melting of the organization within the next portion of the current decadal period. The words "very likely" in IPCC risk assessment terms mean a 90% or greater probability that something will happen. As it looks now, the IPCC is burnt toast and unless it is overhauled fast there's a 90% probability the climate-change political machine is going to come crashing down."

1) In a contest to see who could raise the most money through friends, loans, casino notes, investments, bets, endorsements etc .... who could raise the most in a 1 year period between you and Phil? And if you feel up to it .... what kind of figure do you think you each could get to?2) I realize you have a lot of fans, but do you think there are any 'greater' fans of any one poker player than the couple that always follows Phil around that originally met him back in Atlantic City?I mean buttons, shirts, signs, cheers .....Posted ImageIs Phil creeped out by it or does he genuinely appreciate/enjoy them?

I wouldn't say anything private. Just stuff that people already know so it's no big deal. He obviously leans liberal, most poker players do. And no, I've never seen him have any mercy on anyone at the poker table before.

He'd crush me in something like that for two reasons 1) I HATE asking people for money to be raised, and 2) Ivey has a lot of really rich friends.
