His papa taught him one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to discover everything he could about poker. Phil routinely told his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not let the detrimental comments from other people kill his goal of becoming one of the greatest poker competitors on the planet.

He began playing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He honed his techniques at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for Phil were a learning experience and winning was not a normal thing at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 WSOP when he made two final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the last table he destroyed quite a few of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He made a decision to take his skills to the successive level and headed out west to Vegas. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his success to hard work and an undying passion for poker. Phil says that he’s learning every day and is incredibly humble about his achievements. He admits to making blunders every single session of poker and constantly strives to improve.

Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some big tournaments, he favors winning cash games on a normal basis.
