Even Phil Ivey cannot take down 1st place in a major tournament like every single day. This dude does.

Yeah Pres,he's fake. I think you should challenge him to a Heads-up match and put him in his place.

Did you not even look at the link you sent before you starting once again running your yap?
I wouldn't really consider a 13% ITM to be hitting major tournaments every day.

Looking at the results posted, what I see is a high stakes player that has no better or worse stats than any other winning player just on a different scale.
For him these are not major tournaments, just a part of his day to day grind.

His average buyin of $139 and and 10 tournament a day translates to approximately $1400 a day or somewhere in the range of $40k in buyins per month.
This is more than a lot of people make in a year(not talking about poker here) so it may seem like a major tournament to them.

What I do see is that when he cashes, he tends to run deep(14 wins out of 200 cashes is almost 10% and about 1/4 of his cashes are top 10 finishes).
This shows much discipline in late stage tournament play.

In the future before you toss another of your "talking out of the side of your neck" statements, why don't you take the time to read the information in front of you.

You MAY just learn something.

This guy is nowhere near winning one tourney a day. He's got a long string of no cashes in fact, he just hit the big money a few times.

Are you really that thick you can read?

1) This guy massive multi tables it seems.
2) He plays a darn solid game at any time, so cashes for decent amounts pretty frequently.
3) If you look down to Oct 24, where he ships 1st place in a $215 buy in MTT with 8200+ runners, you'll see winning just 1 event garnered him well over HALF his 120 day profit.

MTT ROI is based a LOT on "swings", and a single big take down can jack your ROI thru the roof.

When you play as high as this guy, it is going to take a LONG TIME to revert to the mean on a $95 average buy in after scoring 246k!

That is why he has a 300%+ roi, NOT because he is "winning every MTT".

Leave the math analysis of hunting down cheats to the wonks on 2 + 2,

um-kay skippy?

No that was a dumb play by a dumb player and Dwan is insanely lucky, I still can't believe that Dwan would have the nerve to call the almighty Phil. Dwan is a donk/fish.

Phil said it so it must be true!!!!!
