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

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the number one poker competitor on the planet by most of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His papa taught him penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to pickup anything he could about the game. He routinely told his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He did not let the negative comments from others annihilate his ambition of being one of the best poker competitors in the world.

    Phil started playing seriously after getting a false ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for Phil were a learning experience and winning wasn’t a normal thing at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he destroyed many of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    Phil made a decision to take his game to the next level and moved out west to Sin City. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players in the world. Phil credits his success to discipline and an immeasurable love for poker. Phil states that he’s learning every single day and is very humble about his achievements. He knows he makes mistakes in each session of poker and constantly aspires to improve.

    Despite the fact that Ivey has won some big tournaments, he prefers destroying cash games on a normal basis.
