Poker superstar Phil Ivey is the embodiment of recession-proof. Not that I would suggest him to start a rap career, but he sure can back up the exaggerated wealth aspect. Coincidentally, his manager is Chris “Gotti” Lorenzo (Irv Gotti’s brother) but I doubt he’ll be grabbing the mic any time soon. Very low key yet unapologetic about his lifestyle, Ivey gave ESPN’s E:60 a rare glimpse into his life and banking about a million bucks along the way.
Ivey is like “Entourage” but keeps it all business. His ice cold stare would leave you clutching your North Face bubble. Blowing hundreds of thousands of ducketts on a roll of the dice and not giving a shit in the process. That’s a guy I easily admit I’m a Stan of.
