NL Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?
April 14th, 2016 by Deacon

Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker contender on the planet by most of the top-ranked pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning one. His papa showed him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wished to learn everything he could about poker. He routinely would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not allow the detrimental feedback from others annihilate his goal of becoming one of the greatest poker players in the world.

Phil started playing seriously after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his game at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first number of years for him were a teaching opportunity and winning wasn’t a regular outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved 2 final tables and came away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he destroyed a number of the well known professionals including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He made a decision to take his game 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 in the world. Phil credits his achievements to discipline and a continuing passion for the game of poker. He says that he is learning every day and is incredibly humble about his success. Phil admits to making errors every single session of poker and constantly strives to improve.

Although Ivey has come first in some large tournaments, he favors destroying cash games on a regular basis.
