Poker pro launched his personalized site IverPoker.com to players over the weekend×¥
Phil Ivey, one of the world's most well-known and celebrated poker professionals, opened up about online poker to ESPN recently, talking about everything from Full Tilt to his own website.
"People aren't learning how to play," Ivey said of other social poker sites, so he decided to set up his own platform. Ivey explained that his website will include video instruction with the man himself and other members of his team. He summarized: "People will learn how to play and live."
On teaching skills
Ivey said that a lot of his skill comes from experience, but added that much of it can be taught. At IveyPoker.com, he said, "I'm going to teach people how to observe other players and do it in the correct way. I'm going to teach them how to make adjustments off the things they observe."
On Full Tilt
Phil was asked if he'd like say anything to former players of Full Tilt at this point. He admitted there was a lot he would like to say to poker players, but pointed out that given the legal ramifications, he is simply not allowed to. "However," he promised, "when the time is right - and it should be soon - I look forward to all the questions."
And who is his main challenger
"Definitely Patrik Antonius," Ivey said. "He's one of the best no-limit players in the world. I've played a lot of poker with him, and especially if he's in the deep stack, he's a very tough opponent to play against."
