• No-Limit Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been branded as the number one poker contender in the world by quite a few of the top professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before reaching the age of 1. His papa showed him to penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to pickup every little thing he could about the game. Phil would tell his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil didn’t allow the negative feedback from other people kill his goal of becoming one of the strongest poker competitors in the world.

    Phil started competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the casinos of Atlantic City. The first number of years for Phil were a learning experience and winning was not a normal outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he made two final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he destroyed many of the well known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision to take his skills to the next level and moved out west to Sin City. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his success to dedication and an undying passion for the game of poker. He states that he is learning every single day and is quite abashed about his achievements. Phil knows he makes mistakes in each session of poker and always aspires to improve.

    Although Phil has come first in some large tournaments, he likes destroying cash games on a normal basis.
