Phil Ivey has been doing really well lately. During the last couple of days he has beaten Phil Galfond aka. OMGClayAiken for more then $200.000 and Di Dang (Urindanger) also. But the best matches for Ivey have been against the screenname seda1 – he already had won more than $500.000 from seda1.


Yesterday we saw on of the sickest sessions of online-poker when Ivey faced seda1 again at Full Tilt Poker. Ivey has told other pro-players that they were crossbooking with seda1 (meaning that they would double the stakes – so the $500/1000 blinds would be actually $1000/2000 and the pots double the amount). They use crossbooking since no poker room has games that big.


When the games ended Ivey had a stack worth over $800.000! He had to reload once – so he won over $600.000 from seda1. And if they really were crossbooking the amount is actually $1.200.000!

Here are some great hands from the session:

250k pot:

Nice checking with a flopped set:

Huge 385k pot:

285k pot – nice turn for Ivey:

Ivey makes a stack worth over 800k:

But who is seda1?

There has been lots of rumors around this – but one thing is sure: he is familiar with Phil Ivey. Making crossbookings and wanting only to play with Ivey. He might be a pro basketball player.. or even Barry Greenstein some are saying. But we are quite sure that seda1 is not Barry… Barry would be a much better player 🙂
