No-Limit Holdem Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

December 15th, 2023 Leave a comment Go to comments

Phil Ivey has been referred to as the number one poker contender on the planet by many of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather introduced him to one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wished to pickup whatever he could about poker. Phil would tell his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the detrimental comments from other people kill his ambition of being one of the best poker competitors in the world.

Phil began competing intently after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the casinos of Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a learning period and coming away with a win was not a common outcome at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he made two final tables and came away with his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he defeated a number of the better known professionals including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his game to the next level and moved out west to Vegas. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to dedication and an eternal passion for poker. He says that he’s learning every day and is quite humble about his achievements. He admits to making errors in each session of poker and always aspires to improve.

Despite the fact that Ivey has come first in some large tournaments, he favors winning money games on a regular basis.
