Default Anyone see IVEY lose to LISSANDRO on ESPN?

Could not believe this.

Ivey had a 4 to 1 chip lead against Lissandro heads up. Then Ivey got real careless w/his chips and ended up losing, wow!!!

Your thoughts?

I cannot believe Phil Ivey's choke. It looked like he didn't really care that he was playing for almost $700,000. I remember Phil's Full Tilt commercial where he says, "Sometimes you know you are beat and you gotta lay it down..." He should of listened to his advice there.

That was sick.

I think that was the worst I have ever seen Phil play.

He is great, but he looked like he was spent and he was just ready too call it a night.

Still have to give the other guy credit he did play very good.

Default ivey why?

Phil Ivey is one of the best players in the world, but at that curcuit event he did not show it. Ivey must have been really tired or his wife needed him at home. i understand callin with the flush draw but the allin with duces was not a smart move. that was just not phil ivey's day.
thanks

Lisandro made a great comeback after getting burned trying to play sheriff early. Ivey complained that he was tired, and it showed. Maybe Ivey's better at coming from behind heads up like he did against D'Agostino.

Phil Ivey is definetely one of the greatest poker players out there. He's young, he cool and he's on the rise and can only improve his game from here. What happened that night, was just a bad night for him, he knew he could've won but fatigue was definetely playing a factor. I think Ivey will definetely bounce back soon enough and take a big title down. He's one of the most mature poker players as well, not like Phil Hellmuth.
Geez, I hate that guy... lol!!

yea i have seen him play so many hands heads up, but i have never ever seen him play like that. He loves to raise on draws, but generally he always lays them down when he gets reraised all in. On the WPT the other day he played pretty terrible 3 handed too. But hes a millionaire and im just a scrub nickel and diming it online, so who am i to criticize how he plays? If any of those draws hit hes the champion and none of us are criticize how hes playing. It's easy to second guess and tell everyone that we would have folded in that situaition, but we werent in that situation and we knew both players cards and everything.

And holding a four to one chip lead is quite a nice position to be in, but it's not exactly a lock. Kind of similar to having pocket kings - you're probably going to lose about one time out of five.

the difference between 1st place money and 2nd place money was so little it was not worth his time to play tight. They were looking at at least another 4-5 hours of heads up play and I am 95% sure that they had made a deal for a chop.

Default Choking Phil

Phil Ivey seems to be great at making the final table on the WPT, but he chokes every time. Lisandro caught all the cards at the final table.
