Ivey League Poker Training On The Way Out?

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Jan 30, 2018

No further training videos will be uploaded after May 1

After three years in operation international poker ace Phil Ivey’s poker training site Ivey League appears to be winding down.

Several online publications were quick to note this week that an advisory post titled ‘Ivey League, the end of the road’ from the Wizard on the site’s forum informed users that effective May 1 no further training vids will be uploaded.

“With the current state of online poker as of May 1st we will no longer be posting new video content. The video library will remain online as we process prorated refunds for everyone who paid for yearly subscriptions. Month to month subscriptions can be cancelled any time.

“We would like to thank everyone who was a part of Ivey League and wish everyone the best with their poker journey’s going forward,” the post advised.


There was no clarification on what Wizard meant by his reference to “the current state of online poker” but there have been indications for some time that in many markets online poker revenues have declined.

Thus far no comment has been made by Ivey’s high profile guest coaches, who include Mike Leah, Patrik Antonius and Andrew Lichtenberger.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
