He was winning in the not-so-distant past....but yes, in NLH HU and PLO HU the game passed him a little, but what's actually happening is Ivey is battling specialists in a bunch of game types, and that's just impossible to do forever.
He'll play some 2-7 3 times a month or something, but it'll be against people who have lived, breathed, eaten TD 2-7 for the last 5 yrs, and of course at some point he was going to get hammered.
He is still my top player on this planet OVERALL....and remember he's won some viciously huge high rollers to offset much of those losses.
