Greatest Feat:
In February 21-23, 2006, he played heads-up Limit Texas Hold'em versus Texas billionaire Andy Beal. With stakes at $30,000/$60,000 and $50,000/$100,000, Ivey won over $16,600,000 over the course of three days, during a heads up match at The Wynn Resort. Ivey was playing for "The Corporation", a group of poker professionals who pooled their money and took turns playing against Beal. Earlier in the month, Beal had beaten the Corporation out of over $13,000,000.  Phil Ivey was the only man able to defeat Andy Beal at his own game, high stakes heads-up limit hold'em.
