Phil Ivey at the WSOP 2010 - All business look across the tableAccording to, Phil Ivey is up nearly $20 million on Full Tilt Poker since January 1st, 2007.

The exact figure? $19,468,460.00.

Ivey's mind-boggling $19.47 million in profits on FTP since the beginning of 2007 have come over a total of 288,265 tracked hands.

This works out to a total profit of over $67 per hand for every hand that Phil has played on the site over the past 3 1/2 years.

Ivey is likely well over $20 million in total profits since the beginning of 2007, but HighStakesDB only started tracking HORSE/Omaha Hi-Lo in July of 2008, and Mixed HA games in January of 2009. Considering that Phil has made approximately $10 million playing HORSE/Omaha Hi-Lo on FTP since July of 2008, it's probably pretty safe to assume that he was a winner in those games prior to then as well.
