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

    Phil Ivey has been branded as the number one poker contender on the planet by many of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His grandpa taught Phil penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wanted to learn everything he possibly could about the game. He routinely told his elders that he was going to be a professional poker player. He did not allow the negative comments from other people kill his ambition of becoming one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

    He began competing seriously after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his techniques at the casinos in Atlantic City. The initial few years for him were a teaching experience and winning wasn’t a common outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP where he made 2 final tables and came away with his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he destroyed a number of the better known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision to take his skills to the next level and moved out west to Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his success to discipline and an undying love for the game of poker. He says that he is picking up skills every day and is very abashed about his achievements. Phil admits to making errors every single game of poker and constantly aspires to improve.

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