Ivey borrowed $10 million from Full Tilt?

According to research and inside sources close to Subject:Poker, "From June 2009 until April 2011, Phil Ivey borrowed money from Full Tilt Poker at least eighteen times, totaling at least $10,715,000."

Ivey supposedly repaid $5-$6 million of the loans on Full Tilt, but no accounting was present for the other $4-$5 million.

It seems some of the accusations made of Ivey in the wake of his $150 million FTP lawsuit might have been correct. Ivey seems to be swinging from zero to hero to zero with regularity in the wake Black Friday.

Wow that is kind of surprising. I'm not saying all poker tv celebrities are immaculate human beings, but I really believed Ivey. I guess in the end we have to realive tat these guys make money lieing, swindling and munipulating their way to millions. Hell I'd love to play for a living but it takes a perticular kind of person to really thrive.
