A few hours ago when Phil took down the 2-7 Lowball event, and closed on what might be the biggest prop bet we've ever heard of, he barely stuck around long enough for winner photos.
There were no quotes. There was barely a celebration. He shipped the tournament and then he was gone.
While we love to get up close and personal with our favorite poker pros it might be for the best that he remains a mystery.
Showing it all certainly didn't work well for M. Night Shyamalan in Signs so if it keeps Ivey looking like a god I'm willing to let him off the hook when it comes to jumping through the media hoops we push on other mere mortal poker players.
But only for Ivey.
