It is partly true, Ivey is really back playing online poker at Full Tilt Poker. But he is definitely not asking for money. He's taking it bu crushing High Stakes!

    Phil Ivey is back to online poker

    Recently, poker players noticed a player at High Stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker called Phil Ivey. As prior-black Friday it was the screen-name of the legendary poker player, everybody believed it was him. Until he started asking for money. Apparently, by not renewing Ivey's contract, FTP removed his screen name from the database and someone was very quick to act.

    But Phil Ivey is back to laying online poker at Full Tilt Poker. His new screen name is Polarizing and so far he has been amazing! So far, he has over $600.000 in profits playing Omaha and Hold'em.

    Big finish for TeamIvey

    Talking about Phil Ivey, guess which team has two of its members finish super high in the Aussie Millions 2013? Yes, TeamIvey members Daniel Shak and Patrik Antonius not only made it to the Final Table of Aussie Millions 2013 Main Event but managed to finish as high as never before. Check out Final Aussie Millions Main Event results and Antonius's history in Australia:

    Final results Aussie Millions 2013 ME:

    Patrik Antonius at Aussie Millions

    • 2009 Main Event - 41st for $13.000
    • 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event - 8th for 129.000
    • 2012 Aussie Millions $250.000 - 2nd for $1.2 million
    • 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event - 3rd for $600.000

    It may be controversial to decide which win is a bigger one between 2nd in $250.000 Challenge or 3rd in Main Event of Aussie Millions because the tournaments differ greatly. So, you can decide for yourself. And while you are at it, you might as well look out for the duel between Patrik Antonius and Rui Cao that should take place this week!

    New Challenge between Patrik Antonius and Rui Cao

    Patrik Antonius and Rui Cao have decided on $1 Million Challenge to be played among them. Last week Antonius accepted the Challenge from Cao but it seemed more that they are agreeing on some minuscule bet rather than $1 million at stake. Maybe it is because they have already played ( Antonius walked away with $800k in profits) and they both knew that the rematch is inevitable. Who knows?
