Phil Ivey Wins Bracelet #6

32 year old poker genius, Phil Ivey, has taken home his sixth bracelet after winning the $2,500 Deuce to Seven No Limit Lowball tournament at the World Series of Poker event that is in full swing in Las Vegas right now.

Ivey beat a tough field of 147 to finally take on John Monnette. The heads up match was particularly long and time consuming, lasting over six hours, but Ivey finally proved his extraordinary talent for the game and took home the bracelet and $96,361 in prize money.

“It was a grueling event,” admitted Ivey. “When we got heads-up, we played a long time heads-up. I did not expect it to last that long. I expected it to break either way. It was a tough final table. I don’t play that much Deuce, so I am pretty proud that I won a bracelet in this event since I had not won this game before. It really means a lot. Every time you win a bracelet, especially now, it is a major accomplishment.”

What is even more of an accomplishment is that Ivey agreed to talk at all about his victory. This player is possibly one of the most reclusive, camera shy pros out there and hardly gives interviews at all.

Once when asked why, Ivey said: “I just like to keep to myself and do my own thing. I like to be my own person. If I can make money off it, that’s great. If not, then I can always play poker. There’s always someone around where I can make a bet or two.”

Many years ago, Ivey said that he believed he could win 30 gold bracelets by the time he turned retired from the game. Despite the fact that this player still has 80% to go to fulfill his dream, his performance at the Deuce to Seven No Limit Lowball event showed that he certainly has the talent and stamina to get where he wants.
