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

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker player on the globe by most of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to discover whatever he possibly could about the game. Phil would tell his elders that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He didn’t permit the negative feedback from others annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

    Phil began playing intently after getting a false ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his skills at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The first number of years for him were a teaching period and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP when he made two final tables and came away with his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the closing table he destroyed a number of the well known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to hard work and an eternal passion for poker. He says that he’s learning every day and is very abashed about his achievements. Phil admits to making blunders in each game of poker and constantly strives to get better.

    Even though Phil has won some large tournaments, he favors winning money games on a normal basis.
