Phil Ivey Quits Poker !!!
So as not to be accused of plagarism , the following is courtesy of another poker forum
. I have not used their forum name for fear of advertising.
Some really sad news hit the poker world this morning: Phil Ivey has decided to end his poker career! According to Full Tilt Poker
, a press release with more information and a personal "goodbye message" from Phil Ivey will be sent out in a few hours. The reason why he has decided to stop playing poker so early in his career comes as a big shock to most people, but not to one of his closest friends....
"Phil has been tired of poker for a long time and it was just a matter of time before he would stop and make it official. According to what Phil told me a couple of days ago, he will now focus on his other big interest in life, politics. Yes, believe it or not! Phil has a genuine interest for politics and he has told me that the aim is to run for the governor post in Nevada within the next few years." writes Howard Lederer in a forum thread.
