Ivey In $5 Million Prop Poker Bet

4/21/10 – Poker forums like twoplustwo were buzzing this week as members discussed the latest monster prop bet between top poker pros.
Generating plenty of comment and speculation was a report that international poker aces Phil Ivey – well known for his penchant for prop bets – and Howard "The Professor" Lederer, had agreed on a two year prop bet worth $5 million that Ivey will win at least two more bracelets at the 2010-2011 World Series of Poker spectaculars….or not.
Ivey has a good chance of acquiring another two bracelets, adding to his current collection of 7. He also has a good track record on this sort of speculative bet and was rumoured to have earned $10 million on side bets alone last year, over and above his total career earnings estimated at $12 815 787.
