• NL Texas Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been labeled as the greatest poker player on the globe by many of the top pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before his first birthday. His grandfather taught Phil one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was addicted to poker and wished to pickup every little thing he could about the game. He routinely told his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He didn’t let the negative feedback from others kill his dream of being one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

    He started competing intently after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his skills at the casinos of Atlantic City. The first number of years for him were a learning opportunity and winning was not a regular thing at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he made two final tables and won his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he destroyed quite a few of the better known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his success to dedication and an undying passion for poker. Phil states that he is learning every day and is very abashed about his achievements. He admits to making mistakes every single game of poker and constantly aspires to improve.

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