    Serious derailing attempts in 4 thread 'Could Phil Ivey be a cheater?'

    This thread has gotten beaucoup interesting in the last day or so with the reemergence of old dirt involving some alleged shenanigans at the O in 2010-12 and other matters involving some old-time names, not necessarily Ivey. I'd heard about some of these things before, and I know there was a massive clampdown done the last time some of this stuff surfaced.

    I'm curious what Druff and a couple of the other Vegas peeps on here might know about some of this stuff, because I expect this 4 thread to soon suffer the fate of the earlier thread, in terms of being locked and then deleted.

    As you know, I hate giving any traffic to 4, but this merits a special exemption. The last 100 or so posts are some interesting stuff, including the blatant derailing attempts.

    "Abe mosseri should count. That little math genius nerd dick has flown under the radar for years. Whatnis it? 18 million? And that's just what we know about under one account. Before all high stakes guys were multi accounting because it was not a big deal then. The rumor is in Bobby's room he made 40 million. I heard Gus kidding him about it and the guys making jokes about 40 mil Mosseri made. That's the reason everyone owes Mosseri like Eli Elezra owes a million to him and don't think he's gotta pay. He says mosseri is a dick for asking him to pay him after all the money he made on FT. They were trenfers to Elezra.
    There are only 5 poker players with great wealth that hasn't blown it on nonsense and they say Mosseri is one of the wealthiest. Dude flys under the radar. No facebook no twiiter nothing. Plays in games with billionaires in Manhattan that just lose.
    That's why he was arrested with Illya trincher because he was playing so high. 250k/500k with some of these guys! Mark lasted stepped down from a diplomat because of Mosseri and Trincher. He seems to slime under the radar somehow. He's a wise ass know it all *******.
    Phil Ivey was multi accounting also in the first years."

    This is an interesting quote because Mosseri owns a house not too far from where I live.

    I believe he spends much of his time away from this location it is still a very nice place. Wouldn't be surprised if he is loaded.

    I think the real question that needs to be answered is who the hell is privateworld?

    I don't want to be the one who outs the guy, HOWEVER, after some research I've noticed he is mainly a high stakes cash game player, under 45 but not by much (by his own admission) and his nickname is in his two plus two screen name (privateworld). Any ideas?

    Your assumption of Johnny World Hennigan is an interesting assumption...

    Boy, I hate reading long 2+2 threads, especially because of the high noise-to-signal ratio.

    I'll jump into it later and comment when I've gone through it all.

    Pooh's guess is interesting, given that Hennigan is 44, has experience playing in Bobby's Room, and uses the "world" in his name.

    Of course, it could be someone trolling and attempting to look like it's John, without directly saying it and getting banned or discredited.

    Need a 2+2 mod to check the IP of "privateworld" and see if it comes up as Philly or anywhere near AC. Of course, John may be elsewhere, but if it comes up as where he lives, then that would add a lot to the theory.

    Steerpike, if you're reading this, it would be a great use of your 2+2 mod account. BTW, they won't be able to tell that you've checked an IP if you haven't logged into the admin control panel. Just saying.

    I thought there was a chance that this PW guy was an insider but I think he lost all credibility when he started the DN thread because it's really starting to look like a troll job. I'm just starting to read it now but it's already locked & I'm interested to see why but I suspect it's just pure stupidity.

    Looking through Privateworld's posting history, I think it's pretty clear it's not Hennigan.

    I hope he starts posting on here instead.

    Weird thread.

    Don't know what to think of Privateworld. Doesn't appear to be Hennigan.

    He may or may not have real inside knowledge. I can't decide. The guy seems to know a lot of detail regarding the various high limit players he discusses (for example, he knows about the Trincher thing with the plumbing company they took over as part of a gambling debt). But all of this could have been obtained from reading all of the available stories, and he could have made the rest up.

    Personally I think it's someone from the high limit community, but not Hennigan, and I think the guy has sprinkled lies in with the truth. Claims to be from Vegas. Would love to see verification of that. If this goes on much longer, I might verify it myself (it will take some effort, but I can).

    I'm with you,don't think it's Hennigan.Didn't he tell a story about talking to him laughing about Dnegs fan boys at a final table? could be a swerve ball I suppose.

    He said he talked to Mike Matusow about Ted Forrest playing Andy Beal. Maybe a dealer or floor guy picking up the gossip.
    If you were in the inner circle would you be posting on 2 + 2 and risking future paydays?

    When you go Bullet Bill,let us know about the Todd Brunson beating, cos I'm sure I saw them playing on High Stakes Poker together,may have got that wrong.

    Not publicly. What he told me has nothing to do with any of this conjecture, imo

    I'm not sure he is from Vegas. In one of his replies about choice centre he say 'When I was in Vegas for the WSOP...'

    That says to me he isn't, even though his 2+2 location says he is...

    He also said he lives 3 doors down from Howard Lederer & his wife. I'm sure somebody should be able to figure it out from that.
