Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker contender on the planet by most of the top-ranked pros. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His grandpa taught Phil one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to learn everything he possibly could about the game. He routinely would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He did not allow the adverse feedback from others annihilate his goal of becoming one of the best poker competitors on the planet.

Phil began competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The initial few years for him were a teaching experience and winning was not a regular outcome at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved 2 final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he defeated quite a few of the well known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He decided to take his skills to the successive level and moved out west to Sin City. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players in the world. Ivey credits his success to discipline and an immeasurable passion for the game of poker. Phil states that he is picking up skills every single day and is very abashed about his accomplishments. He knows he makes blunders every single game of poker and always aspires to improve.

Despite the fact that Phil has won some big tournaments, he likes winning cash games on a normal basis.
