Saturday June 13,2015 : POKER PRO TAKES A MASSIVE ONLINE HIT
Ivey down almost a million over last weekend.
The international high stakes poker pro Phil Ivey, who has apparently thus far eschewed the World Series of Poker this year to play online from Macau at the Pokerstars nosebleed tables, reportedly suffered a massive hit over last weekend.
The High Stakes Data Base reports that all told Ivey's bankroll was diminished by $968,000 after a torrid 3,500 hands, bringing his losses thus far in 2015 to more than $2 million.
Perhaps that's why he is reportedly headed to Las Vegas this week to see whether he can snag his eleventh winner's bracelet…and the cash that goes with it.
By contrast, Cort Kibler-Melby had a great week on the internet, according to the HSDB, finishing with the biggest profit at $733,000.
No one else came even close to the two in the losing and winning stakes.
