• NL Texas Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker player in the world by many of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather introduced him to one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to pickup everything he possibly could about the game. Phil would tell his elders that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the detrimental comments from others destroy his goal of becoming one of the greatest poker players on the planet.

    He started competing intently after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his abilities at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning few years for him were a teaching experience and coming away with a win was not a regular thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved 2 final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he destroyed quite a few of the better known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision to take his game to the successive level and moved out west to Vegas. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to hard work and an undying love for poker. He says that he is picking up skills every day and is very abashed about his success. He admits to making mistakes every single game of poker and constantly aspires to get better.

    Despite the fact that Phil has won some large tournaments, he prefers winning cash games on a regular basis.
