Posted by Angelique | Posted in Holdem | Posted on 23-02-2021

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker competitor on the globe by quite a few of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before his first birthday. His papa showed him to one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to pickup everything he could about poker. Phil routinely told his elders that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t permit the negative comments from other people kill his dream of being one of the greatest poker competitors in the world.

Phil began playing intently after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He honed his abilities at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for him were a learning opportunity and winning wasn’t a normal thing at the time. He became known 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, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he destroyed quite a few of the well 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. He continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to discipline and an immeasurable passion for poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every single day and is quite abashed about his achievements. Phil admits to making errors every single game of poker and constantly aspires to improve.

Despite the fact that Ivey has won some big tournaments, he likes destroying cash games on a regular basis.
