I agree (even though I believe Vanzack is right), but think about Moon right now.  He's some hillbilly who has to wait four months to get back to the tourney.  He left as the overwhelming chip  leader, on a super-hot run, and now he's the overwhelming favorite.  The pressure is going to kill this guy.  You saw Dennis Phillips last year, right?  He ended up in third, but he let people run all over him (Demidov AQ) because he was so nervous/tight.  I can see Moon getting chopped down and disappointing.

I'd take a flyer on Ivey + 400.  Keen poker mind, and months to figure out how to win that thing
 
Hate laying even -400 on such an unknown

He also won two bracelets this year.  A focused Phil Ivey is a dangerous man.

 Phil Ivey makes a final table at the WSOP, albeit lowest in chips, and people think he is awesome?  What makes him so damn special as a poker player compared to past guys that have accomplished the same feat?

Croatian, I'll be looking forward to your future posts on why Darvin Moon is the greatest poker player ever to walk this earth.

No, the idolatry of poker players never ceases to amaze me.  Most of them are broke losers that brag about how they dropped out of school to realize their calling in life.  Just listening to them opine on TV about how smart they are just makes me laugh. Instead of staying in school, a lot of otherwise intelligent college kids try to emulate these bums.  Breaking even in the long run gambling on anything is a great feat IMO, but TV makes most poker players look like they are rich and have money to burn.

Don't have one.  I know there are alot of clowns out there, but I also know that there are alot of players earning a solid living playing poker.  Phil Ivey is the guy that most players aspire to be like.  If you don't think he's a great player and earner, than I just don't know what to tell you.

Phil Ivey is a good poker player, but without his endorsements such as Full Tilt, I don't see how his success can last.  FWIW, how does a guy like Phil Laak have a dime to his name?  He seems like a fairly intelligent person and he dates sexy Jennifer, but what has he ever won to sustain the stakes he plays for?
 
Another point:  Those that can, do, those that can't, teach.  David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth write very good books on odds, but neither has carried that knowledge to success at the tables.  My point is that a lot of poker players can basically tell you the ideal way to play almost every hand based on position, chips, etc., but it guarantees you nothing. 
 
I would say that currently less than 5% make a comfortable living playing poker, and who is to say that will last?  I wish you would hear more balanced reporting on the poker bust outs who had millions at one time due to a lucky period in their life, but are broke now.  I have a lot of respect for Ted Forrest because he is a good poker player, and admits he has been a millionaire and broke soon thereafter.  There just are not enough honest stories out there about those that have chased the poker dream, and destroyed their life because of it. 
 
I have no problem if someone makes it big SOLELY playing poker.  I just think those individuals are rare.  Just look at all the otherwise bright college kids that think they are the next poker superstar.

wizardofoz, you don't pay much attention to the financial specifics of poker do you?


For one thing, estimates are that Phil Ivey is worth more then $50M.   He has a huge stake in Full Tilt.. somewhere around 5%, as he was one of the original founders of the company.   Has nothing to do with endorsements, but actual OWNERSHIP of a company thats probably worth hundreds of millions of dollars.....

If thats not enough, he is the winningest player on Full Tilt since 2007.   He's up 7 mil in all games.... you can check sites like highstakesdb.com as they track all games.

He's made more on prop bets this WSOP then any other person won in dollars....

EVERYONE says hes the best poker player in the world...  stop saying garbage just to say garbage.

  Phil Laak plays cash games well within his means and that he has a very +ev adv. He is a very disciplined cash game player.The guys who go broke are playing way above their bankroll and skill level. I agree that there are very few tourtment players that will stay in money long term. But there is TONS of leather behind cash game players that stay within in their means have good a advantage in the cash games they play in, and make 100k to 200k a year.

And to not see how Phil Ivey success will last you need a very strong percription for your glasses. He can beat any cash game on the plant regularly. He owns 5% of the bigget online poker room in the world. And if all that fails, which it won't he can easly slum it and beat any 5-10 nl game in world for 10k a week. Not a bad living.

And I strongly believe Ted Forrest is a millionaire again.

Read this story about Phil Laak:

He hasn't been broke in a long time.

I'm sure you hear the latest news on these guys, being that you live out in Nevada.  Thanks for sharing.  And I could not be happier for Ted Forrest, as he seems like a very classy guy.
