Posted by Angelique | Posted in Holdem | Posted on 02-07-2023

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker contender on the planet by quite a few of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before reaching the age of 1. His papa taught Phil one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was hooked on poker and wanted to pickup everything he could about poker. Phil routinely would tell his elders that he was going to be a professional poker player. He did not permit the adverse feedback from others kill his goal of becoming one of the best poker players on the planet.

Phil started playing intently after getting a false ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his game at the casinos of Atlantic City. The first few years for him were a learning period and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular outcome at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved 2 final tables and won his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he destroyed quite a few of the better known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He decided to take his game to the next level and headed out west to Vegas. Phil continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to hard work and a continuing love for poker. Phil says that he’s picking up skills every day and is quite abashed about his success. Phil admits to making mistakes every single session of poker and always aspires to improve.

Although Phil has won some large tournaments, he prefers destroying cash games on a regular basis.
