10 Lessons from Phil Ivey

Ivey's icey stare.

1. Play to Win

Everything we know about Phil Ivey is based on what we’ve read on the Web and it’s a picture of a guy who plays to win every time. Ivey’s known for being a tough player who’s nearly impossible to read (an obvious advantage on the tables).
That icy Ivey stare has quietly broken down many an opponent and helps him dominate lesser players – which includes just about everyone else on the planet.
If you’re looking to bring a little Ivey into your life, you can get as serious as a heart attack as quickly as you can. Ivey doesn’t play for fun, he plays to win.
