• No-Limit Texas Holdem Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    [ English ]

    Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker contender on the planet by many of the top-ranked pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before reaching the age of 1. His grandfather taught him penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to learn every little thing he could about poker. He routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. He didn’t permit the detrimental feedback from other people kill his goal of becoming one of the strongest poker competitors in the world.

    Phil started playing seriously after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning few years for him were a learning opportunity and winning was not a regular outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he made two final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the final table he defeated a number of the well known pros which includes "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 participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his success to hard work and an undying passion for the game of poker. He says that he is learning every day and is quite abashed about his success. He knows he makes errors in each session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

    Despite the fact that Ivey has come first in some big tournaments, he favors destroying cash games on a normal basis.
