Two days, another $1.2 million for Ivey

Phil Ivey

It's good to be the king.

Loved by the television-watching poker public, esteemed by his peers, welcomed with front-row seats everywhere, Phil Ivey just lives better lives than the rest of us.

Possibly the most revered player in the world, Ivey torched a tidy portion of the world's high-stakes regulars for over $1.2 million on his personal $500/$1,000 PLO table at full tilt in the last two days.

Four huge pots over $200k did the bulk of the damage; check out the biggest - for a massive $290k and the biggest of the week so far in online poker - below.
