• NL Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker contender on the globe by many of the top-ranked professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to Jersey before reaching turning 1. His grandpa introduced him to one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to pickup everything he possibly could about poker. Phil would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not let the detrimental feedback from others annihilate his goal of being one of the strongest poker players in the world.

    He began playing seriously after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a teaching experience and winning wasn’t a regular outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the last table he defeated many of the well known pros including but not limited to "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 Las Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his success to dedication and an eternal passion for the game of poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every single day and is very abashed about his accomplishments. Phil knows he makes errors in each session of poker and always aspires to improve.

    Even though Phil has come first in some big-time tournaments, he likes destroying money games on a normal basis.
