Phil Ivey Busted, Busted

Phil Ivey 2008 WSOP Main Event

ESPN busted Phil Ivey (um, above center) for coming back from break during the 2008 WSOP Main Event with a new logo on.

Earlier today, Full Tilt Poker pro Phil Ivey had what some may call a "heated exchange" with the ESPN crew.

Ivey left for the first break from the "side" feature table wearing Full Tilt and PPA patches. When he came back, he had a PokerRoad patch on. Because he was seated at a featured table, ESPN asked him to remove his PokerRoad patch for continuity reasons.

While we didn’t hear Ivey’s response in full, it went something like (with apologies to Kid Dynamite) "DYKWTFIA!!!" He ended up wearing the PokerRoad patch after the encounter, meaning that: Ivey > ESPN.

In related news, Phil Ivey has departed us from the Main Event. Victor Ramdin is currently big stacked with 107,000. And get those full chip counts here.
