The Phil Ivey WPT Interview
Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Before play began today, Phil Ivey sat down for a rare interview with WPT Anchor Kimberly Lansing. It was a longer, more in-depth interview than we usually see from Ivey, and excerpts of it will appear when the L.A. Poker Classic episode airs on TV this spring.
Phil Ivey showed up an hour before play began for the interview, on time and ready to go.
Despite all the smiling you see in these photos, most of the interview was serious, and covered a variety of topics, including why Phil Ivey thinks he plays poker differently than the other top players in the world, and his thoughts on who might be the second-best player in the world.
Phil Ivey cracks up the production crew with a joke at the end of the interview.
