Phil IveyHere's something that probably won't shock you - Phil Ivey is doing very well on Full Tilt Poker so far this year.

According to (link below), Phil Ivey is currently up $1,780,699 over a total of 13,158 tracked hands in 2011 on Full Tilt Poker. This is second only to Gus Hansen, who has managed to make nearly $3 million over a total of 59,701 tracked hands.

Phil Ivey has had a particularly strong start to March, earning a total of $1,495,900 over just 1,733 tracked hands. This works out to a very healthy profit of $863 for every hand that he has played on Full Tilt Poker so far this month.

Ivey got off to a slow start in 2011, dropping a total of $664,842 in the month of January. Given his ridiculously consistent results on Full Tilt Poker since the beginning of 2007, nobody actually believed that Ivey's slow start would last. Sure enough, it didn't.

As mentioned, Phil Ivey has done very well for himself during the first week of March, earning nearly $1.5 million in less than 2,000 hands. Over half of this profit came during a 24 hour stretch when he managed to take $340k from Scott "URnotINdanger2" Palmer and $635k from Daniel "jungleman12" Cates.


According to HighStakesDB, Phil Ivey is currently up $19,687,130 on Full Tilt Poker since the beginning of 2007.

Let's look at a breakdown of his results on FTP since January of 2007:

2007, +1,994,049
2008, +7,335,112
2009, +6,337,702
2010, +2,239,568
2011, +1,780,699

These remarkably consistent results have come despite the fact that Ivey has played only a fraction of the hands of players such as Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Gus Hansen.


Phil Ivey is winning again in 2011 - is anyone surprised?
