Its not like boxing where if you train your ass off you can become the champ   Ivey hit it right on the nose  anything can go wrong in a field of 7000  Most of Ivey rings came within a field of hundreds or maybe less . Not thousands. To prove that poker is a game of luck, how many WSOP main event champs repeated ?

+quality333 Johnny Chan almost won 3 in a row but that was in the late 80s, he lost to Phil Hellmuth going for #3. Ungar won it twice in a row and again the year before he died. Would have been really cool to see Ungar playing today because he was a prodigy. The year Raymer won there like 2500 players, the next year with around 6k players he finished 25th. It wouldn't be impossible to see someone win then make the final table the next year in the coming years but it would be near impossible odds for someone to win and then repeat again.

You can play perfectly but the whole round can be a trap from the first moment you look at your cards. When both players have such good on hands on such a dry board they both feel like they are definitely in front. Poker has a large % of luck linked to it. You could make the greatest bet ever and still get pumped on the river from a 1 outer or similar.

lets be real though, not much changes today if Phil Ivey wins that hand, no one knew Phil Ivey at the time anyways, the casual player anyways, which are the ones to brought the BOOM!

The whole story changes. The professional wins the tournament for his 5th bracelet. It isn't the nobody anymore who people think they can beat and win the millions of dollars. It is one of the best hold em players who took Andy Beal for a lot of money. Poker doesn't become huge if that happens.

That's what happens every year; the winner gets some extremely lucky breaks throughout the tournament.

bjaminstaples You clearly dont understand poker. The main event has 7000 entrants. Even the best in the world have little chance.
