Phil Ivey Looks Stoned

He may have been perfectly sober for all we know, but a set of photos that popped up of poker pro Phil Ivey appear to have caught the player at an especially “bad” time.

“He looks either stoned or drunk,” observed Gambling911.com’s own Thomas Somach.  Emphasis on the word “look” since we weren’t exactly there to administer a blood test.

The photos in question were taken during an event in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. 

To be fair, one does not necessarily associate Ivey and his squeaky clean image with drinking or recreational drugs.

“Maybe it was the light from the camera that caused that effect,” suggests Jenny Woo, Gambling911.com’s Senior International Correspondent.

Ivey is often called the “Tiger Woods of Poker” and is one of the most successful players in the game, both on the live circuit and on the Web.
