Phil-Ivey-does-it-big-this-weekend-nets-$476KIvey, who runs roughshot over noobs and pros alike over at Full Tilt, did most of his damage to online player Kagome Kagome (formerly known as IHateJuice), who’s 311-hand losing streak to Ivey at the $3,000/$6,000 limit hold ’em tables was the talk of trades.

The win notches Ivey back into the black for the year after the 35-year-old pro hit a rough patch last month and started the year off more than $600K in the hole. Yet with this win, the New Jersey Native once called “No home Jerome” is already up $300,000 for the year.

At this stage in his career, Ivey has never booked a losing year online, and PokerListings.com speculates that his online cash game winnings could exceed $18 million in pure profit.
