• NL Texas Holdem Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker competitor in the world by most of the top professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before reaching turning one. His grandpa taught Phil penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to learn anything he could about the game. He routinely told his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the detrimental comments from others annihilate his dream of becoming one of the best poker competitors in the world.

    Phil started competing seriously after acquiring a false ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The beginning few years for Phil were a learning experience and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular thing at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he made two final tables and came away with his first WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he destroyed a number of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    Phil made a decision to take his skills to the successive level and moved out west to Vegas. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his achievements to dedication and an undying passion for the game of poker. He says that he is picking up skills every single day and is incredibly humble about his success. He admits to making blunders in each session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

    Even though Phil has won some big-time tournaments, he prefers destroying money games on a regular basis.
