Despite threatening the site with a $150 million lawsuit post Black Friday indictments, Phil Ivey has returned to his former online poker home, Full Tilt following the relaunch, and is now playing under the screen name “Polarizing”. Ivey is showing a profit of $114,000 according to poker tracking site HighstakesDB and in total Ivey has amassed a total of $19,242,744 in online winnings at Full Tilt earning him the honours of online poker’s biggest winner ever.
Ivey’s presence has sparked interest by railbirds who are eager to see him play against other celebrity high stakes pros like Gus Hansen, Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.
Ivey is also at work on building his new project called Ivey Poker, an online poker training website. He has already signed up several pros to his roster of players including Cole South, Greg Merson, Patrik Antonius, Jennifer Harman Josh Brikis, Jonathan Tamayo, Gillian Epp, John Eames, David Peters, Balazs Botond and Matt Giannetti.
