• NL Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker competitor on the planet by many of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before his first birthday. His grandpa taught him one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to discover whatever he could about poker. He routinely would tell his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He didn’t allow the adverse feedback from other people annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the greatest poker players in the world.

    He started playing seriously after acquiring a false ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the casinos in Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a learning period and winning was not a common thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and came away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he destroyed quite a few of the well known professionals including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He decided to take his skills to the successive level and headed out west to Sin City. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his success to hard work and a continuing love for poker. Phil states that he’s picking up skills every single day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. He admits to making mistakes every single session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

    Despite the fact that Ivey has won some large tournaments, he likes destroying money games on a normal basis.
