September 20th, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

Phil Ivey has been referred to as the number one poker competitor in the world by many of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before reaching turning one. His grandpa taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wished to discover whatever he could about poker. He routinely would tell his elders that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He did not allow the detrimental feedback from others annihilate his ambition of being one of the strongest poker players in the world.

He started playing intently after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He honed his techniques at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The initial few years for him were a teaching period and coming away with a win wasn’t a common outcome at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved 2 final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he defeated quite a few of the better 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 Las Vegas. Phil continues to compete 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 poker. Phil says that he’s picking up skills every day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. He admits to making errors in each game of poker and constantly strives to get better.

Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some big tournaments, he likes winning money games on a regular basis.
