I don't understand why it's thought that his least strong game is Omaha like the intro says. Generally in Atlantic City his least favorite game was actually holdem--which he learned late. He was a 7-stud, then hi-low specialist after that--especially Omaha 8 and Stud 8. He's got WSOP titles in S.H.O.E. and TWO in Omaha PL--so I just don't agree he's weak in any form of Omaha, cash or tournament----------

He learned omaha before hold'em? Isn't that like learning to walk before you crawl? Learning omaha first actually might make your hold'em game better right away. There's really nothing else to learn and it's far less complex.

------------That's funny--"learning to walk be fore crawling"--Like Tiger Woods learning golf before he could tie his own shoes. Phil was playing the low limit 7-stud first at the Tropicana. He'd sometimes move to our Thursday $15-$30 7-hi low game. Occasionally some fish(s) would come in and they'd switch to O-8, but it's easy to pick up, if you already know Stud 8 hi-low. Later Ivey went up the street to the Taj and play in the $75-$150 Stud game--The only time he'd play Holdem was $50-$100 limit, bored out of his mind, waiting to get in the big mixed or stud game.

yeah, Phil is a great player. Daniel forgot to mention that he finshed 10th, just off the final table, in 2003. With that size field (800+), thats an impressive accomplishment especially when u consider that the hand he went broke with was impossible to get away from. I think he had a full house and got outdrawn when someone else made a bigger boat on the river. I think it was Farha. Check my info, Im not completely sure.
I love his stare-down Hard not to be a little nervous with his look

Phil has a really good way of keeping a good attitude when he gets a bad beat. In the 2003 WSOP, Freddy Deeb caught a lucky card on the turn making a set of kings, beating Phil's set of sevens. Freddy impatiently asks for his chips and Phil calmly tells him to "Relax". After the chips switch sides Phil says "It must be the shirt" looking at Freddy's red checkered looking shirt. Phil is a very aggresive but great tourny player
I thought this was one of the FUNNIEST things seen on the WSOP. I loved that line, "Must be the shirt."

I love Phil Ivey's game and, based only on what I've heard from others and what I've seen on t.v., he seems like a very respectful and classy young man. He's fearless, has uncanny instincts, and his only weakness as far as I know seems to be Ace-Queen. How many times has he gotten burned by this hand? He will win the main event sometime soon. If Moneymaker didn't suck out on him in '03, I think Phil might have won it then.

Thanks for the great info on Ivey, guys! I'm very curious of his particular style of play when he is in a bad position - is he becoming tight or aggressive, and so on. It will be great if someone can describe a situation where Phil Ivey was in a bad position, and how it ended! Thanks in advance!Bryan NelsonAbout Party Poker

I like how phil has five bracelets but none in hold em, gotta respect that. Any old joe can get lucky and win a bracelet in hold em, I think it takes more skill to win at the other games.

Harrington and Farha were, IMO, better NL tourney players than Ivey was at the time...and Harrington still is...

I once took the average of his cashes in tournament events just for a lark.He averages a 7th place finish for any tournament event he cashes. That alone is impressive, because most players, like Daniel, Doyle, and Phil Hellmuth, average in the late teens. He is a different class of player. He has great composure and focus at the table, and he so immensely popular because of it for whatever reason it may be. That is probably why everyone always picks him in the fantasy leagues to win a bracelet or two each year, something he will likely do this year, or at the very least by the end of 2010.
