Phil Ivey won the tournament going 3-0 in best of 5 Final Match. The difference between Ivey and rest of field is his gambler mentality. He made 5 big bluffs in final match and win 4 against timid opponents. His final opponent Patrick Antonis? Has pocket AA, he limped in.
Had pocket KK, he limps in. Then goes All-in with nothing & loses. They’re playing heads up. Ivey had AA and bet small also? But went all in on A-10.
Which goes to show there is hope for us to beat the “pros”

Hi.
Even a beginner has a chance to win, but only players with the appropriate skills and experience have a chance to win steadily in the long run.

hello

you can beat a PRO !! but you have to play with solid foundations trust your game, I think if you get to those instances it means that you have played a great tournament and why not beat a poker star hopefully one day achieve that dream!

A 'small' part of the difference is, "knowing when to pull these bluffs". It's not just about having a gambler mentality... if it were, how easy the game would be.

I think one of the biggest differences between Ivey and many poker players (not the pros who were in this event as most of them were incredible players) is his ability to adjust on the fly. In fact he's so good at it, that while on a table with predominantly women players, Ivey was able to make one of the biggest adjustments of all. Can you say "Phyllis Ivey"?
