Phil Ivey Wins $3.6 Mil At Aussie Millions Event:  His Biggest Take Ever

Poker pro Phil Ivey just got a whole lot richer Monday.

Already one of poker’s biggest money earners of all time, Ivey added another $4.2 million to his treasure chest at this week’s Aussie Millions $250,000 Challenge.

This was Ivey’s single biggest cash ever.

Ivey entered Day 2 of the event with the seventh largest stack at 622,000 and would eventually finish off fellow poker pro Isaac Haxton by day's end.

No need to shed any tears for Haxton however as he walked away with a cool $2,820,000.

To date, Ivey has won $19,019,874 in live tournament play.
He has 133 cashouts, 24 first place finishes and nine World Series of Poker bracelets.

Ivey currently ranks as the 2nd all time money earners in poker after Antonio Esfandiari, who sits at $26,219,676.
