cd aguila el salvador Phil Ivey makes public appearance in Beijing,Phil Ivey appeared last Saturday in Beijing.With the biggest star of poker making a limited number of appearances this year and skipping the entire WSOP (World Series of Poker), seeing Phil Ivey appear as the guest star of a promotional event in Beijing was something of a surprise..Somuchpoker was on site to get a feel for the event and ask the star a few questions..A promotional operation.The event was arranged purely for promotional purposes, and was organised by Sun Ji Jun, a wealthy Chinese entrepreneur who recently launched his poker application Zhi You. This new app caters to the Chinese market and is intended to compete with the industry giant Tencent poker..Phil Ivey seems to have built a personal relationship with Sun Ji Jun, which explains why he decided to come and support the event. The Chinese poker scene is flourishing, and building a personal network in the country makes sense for Phil Ivey. The American pro was one of the first pros to see the big games in Macau as an opportunity and to focus his energy on this part of the world..The event itself saw Ivey participate in a series of Sit & Gos, challenging a select few fans who mostly won their invitation to the event thanks to the application Zhi You..Phil Ivey didn’t particularly shine during this performance and quickly went back to the rail to greet fans and sign T-shirts..Short answers to big questions.The event also allowed the media to ask some the attending stars some questions. This short sequence was entirely supervised by the event organiser and gave only a little room for improvisation..Phil Ivey shared that it was his first visit to Beijing and that this event was also an opportunity for him to visit the country and that he had a trip to the Great Wall scheduled for the next day.
