Phil Ivey has continued to dominate the poker world with his amazing performance on the online felt. After a dark start in 2013, Ivey was the biggest winner of the day, finishing with a profit of $244k after some action in the PLO and FLO8 Heads-Up tables at Full Tilt Poker, where he plays as “Polarizing”.
To start the day, Ivey found some action against KPR16, but ended up losing $17k to him. Afterwards, Ivey managed to extract $19k against NiklasReinecker in a short $500/$1000 No Limit Hold’Em CAP session.
Some hours later, Ivey clashed heads with Viktor “Isildur1” Blom in a $500/$1000 PLO CAP game, where he was able to take a profit of $90k out of another very short session.
Even with his success in a relatively short time, players began to commented on the relatively short duration of matches. Ivey has been known to be a bit more discerning in his game selection recently and it has brought the ire of top players like Fixed Limit Omaha Eight Specialist SallyWoo.

After a brief tense chat, Ivey returned to the felt to face high stakes regular KPR16. Ivey profitted a total of $161k in this battle, ending Phil’s day with a total profit of $244k.
Apart from Ivey, the day had two other six-figure winners: Sanlker won $211k, and Trueteller, acPokerStars’ regular, won almost $138k playing $200/$400 No Limit Hold’Em 6max.
Ivey and KPR16 played again the following morning, where Ivey destroyed his opponent, winning almost $300k in a couple of hours. With this session, Phil ended a 24-hour period with winning of $540k.
Given his recent success, it looks like it is just a matter of time for Ivey to recover the 2 million dollars he lost since new year.
