• NL Texas Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    [ English ]

    Phil Ivey has been referred to as the greatest poker contender on the globe by many of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning 1. His papa showed him to one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was addicted to poker and wished to learn anything he possibly could about poker. Phil routinely would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil didn’t permit the negative comments from others kill his dream of becoming one of the greatest poker players on the planet.

    Phil started competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his abilities at the casinos of Atlantic City. The first number of years for him were a learning experience and winning wasn’t a common outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he achieved two final tables and came away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he destroyed a number of the better known professionals which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    He made a decision 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 achievements to hard work and an undying passion for the game of poker. He states that he is picking up skills every single day and is very abashed about his success. Phil knows he makes blunders in each game of poker and constantly strives to improve.

    Despite the fact that Ivey has come first in some big tournaments, he favors winning money games on a regular basis.
