As we were walking through the tournament area, a player called out to us. We spun around and addressed him. This particular player is a very successful tournament player with more than $3 million and a couple major titles under his belt. Still, he's not immune to the Fear of Ivey.
"Hey," he said when we got close enough to whisper. "Do you know if Ivey has a stack?"
"Yeah, he does. He's got about sixteen," we answered.
"Damn!" answered the player, truly unhappy with the news. Perhaps he's got a little action on the side, but either way, it's always a wise idea to keep an eye on Ivey.
