    Phil Ivey, preferential treatment?

    Surprised the poker community has not made more of this hand involving Phil Ivey. For reference, visit www.pokergo.com and check the day 4 coverage. Advance to 2:18.08 for the beginning of the hand.

    A player moves all-in in early position with Ivey in the SB. Ivey is not paying attention and he is directed to act. He throws one 25k green chip in the pot and is informed there is an all-in in front of him. He quickly forfeited the chip and play went on. Ivey did not verbalize any action.


    Should Ivey have been obligated to be all-in? Did the dealer and the other players let this go because it was Phil Ivey?


    What Would Druff Do in this situation as the all-in player with QQ?

    Seems like a fine ruling as long as he was obviously not trying to shoot an angle...which I'm sure he wasn't.
