You may know this already, but Full Tilt Poker pro Phil Ivey kind of likes to gamble.
It’s one of the reasons why he’s one of our favorite guys on the circuit.
Word on the
street Amazon Poker Room floor (and this is still somewhat unsubstantiated so far so take it for what it’s worth) is that Ivey has $2M riding on the Lakers to win the NBA Finals.
As seen above, Ivey was playing the $2,000 Limit event last night, sometimes playing and raising hands without looking at his cards as he watched the NBA Championship game on the flat screen.
