Ivey and durrrr Crossbooking Action at PCA

As we were taking our first walk through Day 1b of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure we saw Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey exchanging words.

Ivey was sitting in his seat and durrrr was looking for his table. It only took about 30 seconds but they booked a bet that could potentially be worth $1.5 million.

For those people who don't know crossbooking it's pretty simple. If I crossbooked 100 per cent of my action with you, and I won a $3 million prize, you would owe me an additional $3 million.

Ivey and durrrr crossbooked 50 per cent of their action here and with the size of this prize pool, and the caliber of those two players, it could end up costing one of them a lot of cash.

Both of these guys are used to playing pots worth close to the first prize of major tournaments. Side bets like these are one of the ways they can motivate themselves to play.
