Phil Ivey Not Bothered By Bilzerian “Broke” Rumor

Ivey gets candid about early days, craps habit.

Who knew Phil Ivey had such a nice smile?! In part two of Ivey’s interview with Bluff Magazine video producer Thomas Keeling, he opens up about the “No Home Jerome” rumors of his early fake ID Atlantic City days, how he got started playing poker and his propensity to shoot high-stakes craps.

Keeling then throws out the recent rumor, started by Dan Bilzerian, that Ivey was in fact broke. When asked if he knew Dan, Ivey admits he doesn’t know Blitz very well and cannot recall having ever played a hand of poker with him. Do the rumors started by Beardo bother him? Ivey’s wide grin is pretty telling as he seemingly has no problem with people saying whatever they want when they don’t know his financial situations.

Charming and entertaining, this is an interview you’d never have gotten out of Ivey even 3 years ago.
