Re: Ivey drops 500k in 22 minutes @ Borgata

I was walking around Borgata on Saturday night. I was thinking to myself, "man, how cool would it be if I saw Ivey walking around this place." Sucks that was an actual possibility and it didn't happen. Sure enough my standard bad luck kicks in and I run into Robert Varkonyi instead. No Ivey, nice guy, though.

Floor person should not be airing out the high-limit wins/losses with randoms.

Also. It makes him playing poker for 100k almost silly. What difference does it make if he gets felted for 100k if he has no problem dropping half a million on craps?
Phil Ivey: "The thing that makes me really good at poker is that I have just complete disregard for money. When I sit at a table and if I need to bet $300k-$400k in a hand and I'm bluffing, I just don't care"

This. Why is this even debated? Only an irrational person would play craps and expect to come out ahead.

Re: Ivey drops 500k in 22 minutes @ Borgata

Ivey's going to go broke if he keeps throwing 7 figures at craps all the time. It's only a matter of time. Unless he stops altogether.

At the end of the video, he says that what he does isn't gambling, it's poker, its like a job. That's definitely true. But I was thinking about the craps, which most certainly is gambling--the worst kind where you are guaranteed -EV at all times--and what denial he is in.

Phil Ivey is a toolbag. Donating all the poker moneys to the big casinos

this is why dwan and antonius are better gamblers overall. They don't play -EV games.

No it's not.
