Random WSOP Observation #37: Ivey's Biggest Fans

Meet Phil Ivey's biggest fans. This cute couple has been following Ivey around for over a decade.

They've known him since the days he was known only as Jerome and played underage in the casinos of Atlantic City.

"We met him in Atlantic City when he was playing back then and we played with him there."

Ivey must have made a positive impression on the two. Ever since then, they've been making a pilgrimage out to Vegas once a year to watch him play in the WSOP.

"We've been coming out here for 10 or 11 years. We always come out for two weeks to support him."

Ivey knows them pretty well. A week ago, we saw the two hand a note to a floor man to be passed to Ivey.

Phil read the note and smiled bashfully. We wondered what was written on the paper.

"Oh that was just a little note with our new cellphone number and some well wishes."

They're rooting with all their heart that Ivey takes it down. If he does they're ready to party.

"Oh if he wins we'll definitely have a big celebration."
