This is a discussion on Phil Ivey Having Forgettable WSOP within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Phil Ivey Having Forgettable WSOP but Still Has Time to Turn Things Around
I'm thinking he is just warming up. ;)
There is no doubt that Phil is one of Poker's greats. In spite of that, I have never been a big fan, and all his other gambling adventures (misadventures?) have done little to change my mind.
It seems that he has two different styles of play: the discombobulated, kinda disinterested Phil (still a menace), and the laser-focused Phil (really, really scary).
Gives me some solace knowing that even arguably the greatest poker player in the world can have a bad month just like the rest of us. That being said he's seen it all and I doubt this is barely even a big deal to him.
