IveyPoker preparing for 2013 launch

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Dec 15, 2012 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

Phil Ivey doesn’t have to do very much to grab some poker headlines, basically just showing up is usually good enough to get a mention, but even still his eponymously named poker site, IveyPoker.com, has been doing a lot of PR work recently. IveyPoker just sent out a press release detailing the site’s plans for an early 2013 launch date for the free social media online poker product.

It’s still unclear how the site’s training arm will work, and how the site will operate, but one thing that is crystal clear is that IveyPoker has snatched up some of the biggest names in poker, as well as a growing roster of young talented players.

The core pros at IveyPoker.com are Phil Ivey, Jennifer Harman, Patrik Antonius, Cole South and James Dempsey. Joining this core group are seven recently named players:

* Josh Brikis – USA

* Jonathan Tamayo – USA

* Gillian Epp – CAN

* Matt Giannetti – USA

* John Eames – UK

* David Peters – USA

* Balazs Botond – HUN

In addition to the signings IveyPoker.com received some extra press this week when it was disclosed that Phil Ivey was back at the Full Tilt Poker tables under the new screen-name “polarized”.

Here is a look at the Press Release issued by Ivey Poker on Thursday:


Las Vegas, Nevada – (DECEMBER 13, 2012) – Phil Ivey officially announced today the development and upcoming launch of IveyPoker, a new free-to-play online social game designed to entertain and teach the world winning poker. Set for release in early 2013, IveyPoker will be available on Facebook, iOS and Andriod.

IveyPoker is the first social game that gives poker fans an opportunity to play for fun with top professionals while learning how to play winning poker. The game will feature exclusive training video content that will resonate with both novice and experienced players.

Phil Ivey, winner of eight World Series of Poker bracelets and considered by many to be the greatest all around poker player in the world, has built a roster of the world’s top poker professionals to be part of Team Ivey and have an active role in the game. Team Ivey members include Patrik Antonius, Greg Merson, Jennifer Harman, Cole South, James Dempsey, Matt Giannetti, Balazs Botond, Gillian Epp, David Peters, Josh Brikis, John Eams and Jonathan Tamayo.

“I’ve traveled the world playing poker and people always tell me how they would like to learn how to play but have no idea how or where to begin,” said IveyPoker Founder, Phil Ivey. “IveyPoker was created to give anyone interested in poker, whether they have ever played the game before or not, the opportunity to play for free and learn winning poker from some of the best professionals in the world.”
