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

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker competitor in the world by quite a few of the top pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before his first birthday. His papa introduced him to one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wanted to pickup everything he possibly could about the game. He would tell his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He did not let the detrimental comments from others annihilate his dream of becoming one of the strongest poker competitors on the planet.

    He began playing intently after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the casinos in Atlantic City. The first few years for Phil were a learning experience and winning was not a normal outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and came away with his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he defeated quite a few 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 next level and moved out west to Sin City. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to discipline and an undying love for the game of poker. He says that he’s learning every day and is very abashed about his achievements. Phil admits to making mistakes in each session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

    Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some large tournaments, he prefers destroying money games on a regular basis.
