Phil Ivey has been labeled as the greatest poker player in the world by quite a few of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before his first birthday. His grandfather taught Phil one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wished to discover every little thing he possibly could about poker. He routinely told his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not allow the negative feedback from other people annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

He began competing intently after getting a false ID with the name of Jerome. He honed his skills at the casinos of Atlantic City. The initial number of years for Phil were a teaching period and winning was not a normal outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved 2 final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the closing table he destroyed a number of the better known professionals including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He decided to take his skills to the next level and headed out west to Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his success to dedication and an eternal love for the game of poker. Phil states that he’s picking up skills every day and is very abashed about his accomplishments. He knows he makes blunders every single game of poker and always strives to improve.

Although Phil has come first in some big tournaments, he favors destroying cash games on a normal basis.
