September 27th, 2019 by Jazmyn Leave a reply »

Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker contender on the planet by quite a few of the top professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning one. His papa introduced him to one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wanted to pickup whatever he could about poker. He routinely told his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He did not let the negative feedback from others kill his dream of being one of the strongest poker competitors on the planet.

He started playing intently after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his game at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for him were a teaching period and coming away with a win was not a normal thing at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved two final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he defeated a number of the well known professionals including "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. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to discipline and an undying love for poker. He states that he is picking up skills every single day and is very humble about his achievements. Phil admits to making blunders in each game of poker and constantly strives to get better.

Despite the fact that Ivey has come first in some big-time tournaments, he prefers destroying money games on a regular basis.
