Full Tilt Poker’s Phil Ivey Makes the WSOP Main Event Final Table

“DUBLIN, July 17 /PRNewswire/ — Team Full Tilt’s Phil Ivey has made the final table of the most prestigious live poker tournament in the world, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.

“Battling through eight days of play and a field of 6,494 players, Ivey earned a spot at his first-ever Main Event final table and a shot at the US$8.55 million top prize.

“The growing popularity of poker and the WSOP in recent years has made it a tall order for professional players to “go deep” in the Main Event, making a final table finish more significant than ever for the soft-spoken, 33-year-old New Jersey native. Other high-profile pros who have made the Main Event final table in recent years include Team Full Tilt’s Allen Cunningham and Mike Matusow, along with Full Tilt Poker pro Lee Watkinson.”
