Prior to Full Tilt Poker losing their license in June of 2011, Phil Ivey was one of the biggest faces behind the site. Not only was he extremely successful on the tables, but Ivey also helped design some of the software and playing features.

However, Ivey pretty much disappeared from the high stakes online poker scene after the Alderney Gambling Control Commission revoked FTP's license. But Full Tilt Poker is back under new management and so is Ivey. This being said, let's discuss his return to the online poker world along with a new name he's playing under.

A Fresh Beginning

Under the old Full Tilt management, Ivey's used his real name as a screen name. However, he's now known as "Polarizing" on the FTP high stakes tables. His opponents were alerted to this by a Full Tilt email explaining how he could pick a new name under new management. 

So far, the change hasn't hurt Ivey's play at all since he has collected $103k in profits. A master of all poker variations, most of Phil's recent profits have come through 2-7 Triple Draw high stakes games.

Furthering History

With the additional $103k that Phil Ivey has earned playing high stakes 2-7 Triple Draw, he's only furthering his own online poker record. The New Jersey native has now collected $19.3 million in profit, which is easily better than anyone else. In fact, it's not even close since Patrik Antonius is next with $11.84 million in cash game winnings.

This being said, it doesn't seem like Ivey has missed a beat when it comes to playing internet poker. And if he continues to experience success, it won't be long before he reaches the $20 million mark in career earnings!
