• NL Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

    Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker contender on the planet by most of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before reaching turning 1. His grandpa introduced him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wanted to learn everything he could about the game. Phil would tell his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t allow the adverse comments from other people destroy his goal of being one of the best poker competitors in the world.

    Phil began playing intently after getting a false ID by the name of Jerome. He honed his abilities at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a learning experience and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he made 2 final tables and came away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he defeated many of the better known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

    Phil made a decision to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Sin City. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to dedication and an eternal passion for the game of poker. Phil states that he is picking up skills every single day and is quite abashed about his accomplishments. He admits to making errors in each game of poker and constantly strives to improve.

    Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some large tournaments, he likes winning money games on a normal basis.
