Phil Ivey Up Over $15 Million Dollars on Full Tilt Poker Since Beginning of 2007
Since the beginning of 2007, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius have combined to make approximately $30 million dollars on Full Tilt Poker.
According to HighstakesDB.com (link below), Phil Ivey has made an astonishing $15,661,019.27 on FTP over the past three years. Given that HighstakesDB only started tracking HORSE/Omaha Hi/Lo in July of 2008, you can probably safely assume that Ivey has made even more money on the site.
Since the beginning of 2007, Patrik Antonius has nearly made $15 million dollars on FTP as well.
The "Patrik Antonius" account is up nearly $10.5 million dollars since he signed his deal with Full Tilt Poker. When you include the accounts that he used before signing his deal with Full Tilt ("FinddaGrind", "Luigi66369") you are left with around $13.7 million dollars in total earnings.
Phil Ivey's results are made even more impressive by the fact that he has been so consistent over the past 35 1/2 months.
Ivey has been one of the top 3 most profitable cash game players on Full Tilt Poker for all three of the years that results have been tracked.
In 2009, Ivey has made approximately $6.3 million dollars over 99,528 tracked hands, making him the second most profitable cash game player on the site (behind Patrik Antonius).
In 2008, Ivey led the way with a total profit of $7.3 million dollars over 95,884 tracked hands.
In 2007, Ivey finished with a total profit of $1.99 million dollars, which was good for third place overall (behind "Kaibuxxe" and "pr1nnyraid").
Phil Ivey's $15,661,019.27 profit comes over a total of 245,017 tracked hands. That means that, since the beginning of 2007, Ivey has made around $64 for every hand that he has played on Full Tilt Poker.
Antonius' numbers are extremely impressive as well, as he has made around $37 for every hand that he has played on the site since the beginning of 2007. Impressive, but still not at Ivey's level.
Players come and go in the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker, but Ivey and Antonius remain consistently dominant, year after year.
