Phil Ivey dominates the high-stakes on Full Tilt.

If you take a look at Online Poker Results, you will see that Phil Ivey has consistently dominated the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker.
He doesn't have an edge in just one game, he has an edge in all of the games.

Most of the high stakes players have one, or maybe two games that they feel like they have an advantage in.
And they will avoid games that they feel like they don't have an edge in.

But Phil Ivey is different he is a machine, and seems to be able to profit in any game that he chooses, which makes him one of the best all round poker players in the world ever.

This is the top 5 winners on fulltilt this year.

1. Phil Ivey $7.217.278 With 86133 hands played.

2. Tom 'durrrr' Dwan $4.134.654 With 203543 hands played.

3. Phil 'OMGClayAiken' Galfond $3.428.738 With 134583 hands played.

4. Hac 'trex313' Dang $3.326.685 With 134379 hands played.

5. David Benyamine $2.939.865 With 241499 hands played.

Phil ivey is the biggest winner with the fewest hands played so far this year, which have made him about $83 for each hand played in 2008.

Keep in mind that only started tracking the Omaha Hi/Lo and HORSE games a few months ago.
You can probably safely assume that Ivey was a winning player in both games prior to July 1st, 2008, which might put his total winnings on Full Tilt since January of 2008 up over the 7 million dollar mark.

Players such as David Benyamine and Patrik Antonius have played under multiple accounts on Full Tilt. However, even if you consolidate these results, neither player is even coming close to Phil Ivey in terms of overall profits.

When Phil Ivey in september made it into the money in the H.O.R.S.E tournament at WSOPE in London, he reached the 10 million dollar mark in total live poker winnings. (only official numbers)

Talk about being on form, this kid won over $9 million at the WSOP Main Event! I'm looking forward to watching the way this young gun plays his hands in the Party poker Premier League."

"Hearts13" The Run of a Lifetime

The story of the run of a lifetime.

When "Hearts13" logged onto Ultimatebet Sunday night, he thought it was just going to be another regular session. Little did he know that his life was soon about to completely change.

Only a few days ago, "Hearts13" was a regular in the small NLHE games on Ultimatebet.

He had a couple of hundred dollars in his account and was happy grinding it out at the lower limits.

Then early Monday morning "hearts13" won the Bad Beat Jackpot.

He ended up receiving around $65,000. He decided that he wanted just a bit more money, enough to pay all his debts and have some cash in the bank.

And then sat at a $50/$100 NLHE table, and proceeded to go on the run of a lifetime, battering Prahlad "Spirit Rock" Friedman in a NLHE, high-stakes battle. When all was said and done, "Hearts13" walked away with a profit of around $100k.

He continued to battle against high-stakes regulars. He more than held his own, and was seen with a stack of $200k at a $100/$200 table at one point.

Whenever "Hearts13" sits at a table now, there is usually a long line-up of well known players that are lined up to play him.

Now the big question becomes - how long will "Hearts13" be able to maintain this incredible run, especially with everyone now gunning for him?

Daniel Negreanu's Blog

Daniel Negreanu actually write good posts on his blog.

This time a little about WSOP 2008 and betting rules at bellagio in Las Vegas.

Daniel writes:

It seems that every year at the WSOP people go bonkers at some point and act, well, just randomly bizarre. I assume it's the pressure, but man, some of these outbursts are downright awkward and annoying.

You got one 'classy' kid yelling, "Who's the bully now," after busting a Russian, than you have another guy yell, "You are an Idiot," to an opponent four times while pointing right at him aggressively.

Some people just completely lose composure and let their emotions take over. When the amateurs do it I can give them a pass, they have likely never been in that kind of situation before, but when a longtime pro does it, it's just totally inexcusable and pathetic.

When people play for that many days they'll often just crack and lose their minds on one hand and usually go broke.

Aside from the play, I did see a hand come up which involved a pet peeve of mine. Losev pushed forward 3 million in chips, took it back, and then cut out just 1.5 million in chips.
The floor was called over and they ruled that the bet should only be 1.5 million instead of the 3 million that was originally pushed forward.

It's a dangerous precedent to set, but the procedure used at Bellagio is by far the absolute worst of anywhere in the world. The set up there is absolutely designed to help cheaters and angle shooters.

At Bellagio there is a betting line. Unless verbally declared, only chips that cross that betting line count as a bet. There are a million ways to take advantage of this rule, but here is one good one:

You are on the river and your opponent bets 100,000. You have a marginal hand and aren't sure if it's good. Here is what you do:

Take four 25k chips, splash them forward but not far enough to touch the betting line. Your opponent will likely turn his hand up.

If you can beat his hand, just take the pot, if he shows you his hand and you can't beat it, just take your chips back and tell the floor he should get a penalty for turning his hand face up in the middle of a hand!

If the floor says you have to call the bet you just say, "Nope, my chips did not cross the line and I did not say call." That's cold blooded! According to the awful Bellagio rule, though, it would be considered perfectly legal to do that.
