Pro player Phil Ivey won another major tournament event this weekend, just 24 hours after netting $1 million for his first place finish in the Monte Carlo Millions.
This time round, the Full Tilt champion collected $600,000 and beat 7 other top pros at the FullTiltPoker.net Invitational Live from Monaco event, which was held at the prestigious and luxurious Casino de Monte Carlo on the shores of the Mediterranean on November 24.
Second place winner John Juanda earned $280,000 for his efforts, while Devilfish Ulliot took home $120,000 for third place. The remaining competitors were Phil Hellmuth, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Mike Matusow, and Gus Hansen.
Ivey's triumph was broadcast live on Fox Sports Network (FSN) in the United States and 13 other international territories, reaching 120 million viewers. The tournament will, however, reach an additional 130 million viewers as it continues to broadcast on various networks in additional international territories over the coming months.
Ivey, Juanda, Ferguson, and Matusow represent Full Tilt Poker and play poker several hours a week in its poker rooms, helping online amateurs improve their game by offering tips through real-time chats at the tables. They are joined by a slew of other top players, including Howard Lederer, Phil Gordon, Clonie Gowen, Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, and Andy Bloch, among others.
