Monte Carlo, Monaco (PRWEB) November 25, 2005
Full Tilt Poker’s Phil Ivey proved once again why he is considered one of the world’s best poker players, winning the Monte Carlo Millions tournament at the historic Casino De Monte Carlo. By besting an invite-only field of 111 players and defeating Paul Jackson after just 20 minutes of heads-up play, Ivey collected $1 Million and the Championship Vase for his impressive performance in one of the oldest and most glamorous casinos in the world.
Ivey’s win marks the sixth final table appearance of the year for the five-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, including a victory at the 2005 World Series of Poker $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament. In total, Ivey has taken home more than $2.7 Million in tournament winnings for the year.
“Phil simply continues to impress,” said fellow Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer. “To turn in these kinds of performances while playing a limited tournament schedule is simply amazing and proves again why Phil is the best all-around player in poker today.”
In addition to Ivey, Team Full Tilt members John Juanda and Chris Ferguson also finished in the top 10 at the Monte Carlo Millions, earning $125,000 for sixth place and $35,000 for tenth place, respectively.
