Phil Ivey
Ivey: seda1? He's my man.

It's only a matter of time when a deep-pocketed amateur sits down at a high-stakes game with a seasoned pro.

Eventually, the money flows to the pro.

High-stakes rivals Phil Ivey and the as-yet-unidentified seda1 resumed their ongoing battle at $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em yesterday and when the smoke cleared Ivey was left sitting with $800k - $600k of that formerly belonging to seda1.

After a six-hour session of $500/$1,000at Table Ivey Deathmatch on biggest pots won online over the last day, week and month.

 Ivey got the best of it by far, taking at least seven pots over $170k and totaling well over $1 million.
