Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker contender in the world by many of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before his first birthday. His grandpa taught him penny-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to pickup whatever he possibly could about the game. He routinely told his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the detrimental comments from others annihilate his dream of being one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

Phil began playing intently after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He honed his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for him were a learning opportunity and winning was not a common outcome at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and came away with his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the final table he destroyed many of the better known pros including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his skills to the successive level and headed out west to Las Vegas. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Ivey credits his success to discipline and an eternal love for poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every single day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. Phil admits to making mistakes every single session of poker and always aspires to improve.

Although Phil has come first in some big-time tournaments, he likes winning money games on a normal basis.
