No-Limit Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker player on the planet by many of the top pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His papa taught him one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was addicted to poker and wanted to discover everything he could about poker. Phil routinely told his elders that he was going to be a professional poker player. He didn’t allow the detrimental comments from other people destroy his goal of becoming one of the strongest poker competitors on the planet.

Phil started competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first number of years for him were a teaching opportunity and winning was not a regular thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he made 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, 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 decided to take his game to the next level and moved out west to Sin City. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players in the world. Phil credits his achievements to dedication and an immeasurable love for the game of poker. He says that he is picking up skills every single day and is very abashed about his accomplishments. He admits to making errors in each session of poker and always aspires to improve.

Even though Phil has come first in some big-time tournaments, he favors winning cash games on a regular basis.
