"The Corporation" vs Andrew Beal
Perhaps one of the most notable stories surrounding Ivey’s poker career is that of his Heads Up battle with billionaire banker Andrew Beal back in 2006. According to several reports around that time, Ivey and Beal played three days of poker against each other, with Ivey coming out on top with a cool $16.6m profit. This whole saga stemmed from an ongoing battle between Beal and several top players for many years before that, in which the players then decided to club together, coin themselves ‘The Corporation’ and take on Beal. It was also reported that the $16.6m win meant that ‘The Corporation’ had won back $10m they had lost to Beal previously and added the $6.6m to their bankroll as a whole.
