This is just sick.

It's not like Phil Ivey isn't rich enough. He's got approximately $10M in career tourney earnings...countless millions more from cash games (live and online)...and countless millions on top of that from whatever his stake in Full Tilt is.

On top of that, he's banking a milli at a minimum for making the 2009 WSOP Main Event final table. And if he wins it, he'll make a rumored $10M more from Tilt.

And then another $2 million from Andy Bloch.

Bloch was on the Hardcore Poker Show last night and admitted that when there were 2,400 players left in the Main Event, he bet Ivey 20K at 99-1 that he couldn't close the deal.
Facing paying Ivey $2 million, he is contemplating buying out of the bet now.
