Phil Ivey Throws a Tantrum

No, you’re not hallucinating right now. The title does read ‘Phil Ivey Throws a Tantrum”. It’s not a joke, people; several eyewitnesses have reported that Phil Ivey did indeed throw a tantrum at the Las Vegas Wynn at the craps table. Until there’s an official confirmation, though, consider this as a rumor.

Not for sensitive ears – or eyes

It’s both horrifying and fascinating to think that Phil Ivey, Full Tilt Poker sponsored pro and one of the most respected players in the industry, threw a tantrum at one of the most famous casinos in Vegas. Apparently, Ivey was playing at the craps table when the employee made a mistake, though it’s unclear what exactly that mistake was. Eyewitness reports say that it was because the dice ‘rested on the back wall’. The employee called him on that shot, and that was when Ivey blew up. According to onlookers Ivey insisted that in all his years playing dice, he had never seen anything that stupid. He went on to hurl the F-word a lot of times at the employee. Of course, since this was Phil Ivey, security wasn’t quick to escort him out of the casino even though he was obviously out of line with his actions.

Of course, when Ivey dealt the finishing blow, it was extremely shocking. But first, let me warn you, if you’re sensitive at all about cuss words, then I suggest you stop reading now. He told the employee, “If you see me playing dice here again, I’ll suck your dick”. He didn’t stop at one proposition though, he went on to point at another supervisor, and said “Yours too!”. Then, in a loud bellow, “I’ll never play here again!” – so no, those propositions will most likely never be realized.

Of F-words and Propositions

Now, a lot of people may be wondering, ‘is this even true?!’. Phil Ivey hardly speaks, after all. If he wasn’t such a great poker player, he’d bore us to death at the felt. To imagine him shouting, much less hurling obscenities, is quite difficult. Eyewitnesses say that he was drunk during the incident, however, so that might have counted quite a lot for his behavior.

Still, one might be wondering why any casino would want to agitate Ivey, who is obviously a high roller. That employee might be in big trouble because of this, even though it technically wasn’t his fault. Still, Ivey can’t come out unscathed after such an incident either, especially with the Poker Hall of Fame induction only days away.
