Some context:

You are in the Battle of Malta Main Event, Day 2.

You have 35 blinds. @Phil Ivey has just sat down at your table.

The dealer is kind to you and gives you K♥K♦.

You raise 2.5 BB from UTG.

Phil, UTG +1, calls and all the other players fold.


The flop reveals A♣K♠9♦.

You bet (bet size is up to you).


He looks at you with his famous inscrutable poker face and says out loud:

“I know you have a pair of Kings in hand.”

He stares at you for a few more seconds and pushes a pile of chips in.

“I raise”, he says. (About twice your bet.)



Is he trying to bluff you?

Did you say your hand out loud without even noticing?

Does this man really read minds?

And if so, is it legal? Shouldn’t you call the floor manager?

Or are you going to beat the best player on Earth?
