Poker superstar Phil Ivey’s poker website is preparing for an upcoming launch of Ivey League, which is the training portion of IveyPoker.com that is designed to assist players in improving their play on the felt.
A recent photo tweet by the nine-time WSOP gold bracelet winner showed Patrik Antonius and Aaron Jones working together in filming a new video that will be available at the coaching site. The two pros are among dozens on the Team Ivey roster who will be lending advice to players on how to climb up the ranks and advance to new levels of profitability in poker.
Ivey announced the launch of his site in late 2012, saying that he wanted “to teach the world how to play better poker.” Following that announcement, almost three dozen pros were selected in piecemeal fashion to join Team Ivey in providing training. Ivey’s hand-picked roster includes instruction from diverse playing styles from the nit leanings of Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler to those pros who favor a somewhat looser approach.
While the pros at Team Ivey are far removed from the beginning levels of play, they have not forgotten the basics needed to instruct rookies who are new to the game. More advanced levels of training are also available from a well-rounded stable at IveyPoker that include tournament champions, cash game specialists, and experts on all game types and forms of poker, according to IveyPoker.com.
In February, the renowned poker coaching site LeggoPoker.com was acquired by IveyPoker, with Ivey stating that “LeggoPoker is one of the best teaching sites on the market.” He added that the acquisition brings with it “a great match with IveyPoker and together we will offer a top-notch educational poker destination in Ivey League.”
Over the summer, a social media game of poker was launched at the site, but the training videos remained under development. Those videos will soon be available as the long-awaited launch of the Ivey League will commence once the “finishing touches” are completed.
