Among the favorites to win the 2009 World Series of Poker main event, Phil Ivey walked off with Bracelet number 7 at this year's Event #25 - the $10,000 Omaha 8/Stud 8 championship.  This marked the second bracelet won by Ivey at this year's WSOP.  He also received the top prize of $220,538.

Ivey has historically ranked among the top 10 most consistently successful poker players in the world.  He has made the final table of the World Poker Tour a record eight times. 

According to HighStakesDB.com Phil Ivey earned $1.99 million on the Full Tilt Poker website in 2007 and $7.34 million in 2008. Ivey is endorsed by the website.  As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $10,000,000.  $3,104,014 of his total winnings have come from cashes at the WSOP.

His success at this year's WSOP is good news for Team Full Tilt, which has suffered a tremendous public relations blow over the past week after news broke on the Gambling911.com website that the US Government had confiscated millions of dollars of funds from the Full Tilt Online Poker Room.  The US Attorneys office alluded to "money laundering" in letters sent to certain banks.  The action by the US Government was also taken to coincide with the start of the World Series of Poker.
