What Phil Ivey Did When Darvin Moon’s Queen Hit on The Flop

This is slightly different than what our reaction would be...slightly.

This is slightly different than what our reaction would be...slightly.

The Entities who comprise Wicked Chops Poker are known to be a lot of things: handsome, well-endowed, and even possible of hitting someone with the occasional zinger.

One thing we’re not known for is being gracious at losing.

So let’s just say that if our hopes of winning a WSOP Main Event title that everyone was pulling for us to win was dashed as our A-K was cracked by a ginger logger’s A-Q, then the LAST thing you’d see us doing is calmly taking a bite out of an apple when the Queen hit on the flop, as Phil Ivey did.

The more likely would reaction would be something like yelling, “You effing ginger logger! Eff you! How the eff do you not take a sponsorship deal??? What’s wrong with you??? Eff principles! And eff everyone here! Eff eff eff!”

Ivey’s reaction soon thereafter was wildly different too, as he was reportedly on Tilt playing Omaha Hi/Lo 30 minutes after leaving the Rio.

Also, as seen below, the Humphrey’s reaction to Ivey’s all-in was different too…kinda cute, actually.

    I like that old couple that gives Phil their love and support. I had always wondered if he appreciated it or was embarrassed of them but when I saw the aside on the telecast where he said to another player he has known them since he was 18, it felt to me that he likes them a lot as well. They supported him before he was “Phil Ivey” and it appears they saw something in him at a young age that even Phil himself probably did not.

    Can you imagine what Hellmuth would’ve done?! Holy shit, it would’ve been like Vesuvius at the table! F-bombs would’ve been flying like volcanic ash! That would’ve been Must See TV.

    Remember there is one very big difference between Ivey and the rest of us. $8.5 million is an unbelievably huge life changing amount of money for all of us. For Ivey, it’s just a bit of pocket change. That takes a whole lot of the pressure off.
