Phil Ivey, one of the most respected poker players, reportedly won $476,000 over the weekend at Full Tilt Poker.  His main opponent was Kagome Kagome.

Online Poker.org described the big showdown and ultimate win by Ivey:

Ivey and Kagome engaged in a relatively brief battle of 311 hands, in which Ivey systematically took $476k from Kagome playing heads up LHE at the $3000 / $6000 stake level.
The match puts Ivey in the black for 2011 by $300k, solid redemption for a player who experienced an unfortunate $600k downswing in the formative days of 2011.

Phil Ivey’s net worth was recently estimated to be around $100 million.

Ivey is regarded by numerous poker observers and contemporaries as the best all-around player in the world today.
