Phil Ivey representing “The Corporation” which originally had seven players—Chip Reese, Howard Lederer, John Hennigan, Jennifer Harman, David Grey and Chau Giang, plus their leader—the Godfather “Texas Dolly.” Later, they would be joined by others, including Todd Brunson, Ted Forrest, Johnny Chan, Lyle Berman, Barry Greenstein and eventualy Phil Ivey.

It was a collective of high stakes players who pooled their resources to play the Billionaire Andy Beal.

After all sorts of twists in turns Phil Ivey finally managed to win $16.6mln over 3 days. Andy Beal vowed to never play poker again, which he has kept true to his word and because of that, there was no further need for the Corporation which disbanded.
