• No-Limit Holdem Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker contender on the globe by quite a few of the top pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before his first birthday. His papa showed him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to learn every little thing he could about the game. He routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. He did not let the negative feedback from others kill his ambition of being one of the best poker competitors in the world.

    He started playing seriously after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The initial number of years for Phil were a learning experience and coming away with a win was not a common outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he achieved two final tables and won his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he defeated many of the better known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    Phil decided 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. Ivey credits his achievements to dedication and an undying passion for the game of poker. He says that he’s picking up skills every day and is quite humble about his accomplishments. He admits to making errors every single session of poker and always aspires to get better.

    Although Ivey has come first in some large tournaments, he favors destroying money games on a normal basis.
