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


Posted by Angelique | Posted in Holdem | Posted on 28-01-2020

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the greatest poker contender in the world by many of the top-ranked professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning 1. His grandpa taught Phil penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wished to pickup anything he could about poker. He would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not let the negative feedback from other people annihilate his goal of becoming one of the greatest poker players in the world.

Phil started competing intently after getting a false ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his skills at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for Phil were a learning period and coming away with a win was not a regular thing at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made 2 final tables and won his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he defeated many of the better known professionals which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Sin City. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Ivey credits his achievements to discipline and an undying passion for the game of poker. Phil says that he is learning every day and is quite abashed about his accomplishments. Phil knows he makes errors every single game of poker and constantly aspires to improve.

Even though Phil has won some big-time tournaments, he prefers winning money games on a normal basis.
