March 22nd, 2022 by Deacon

Phil Ivey has been referred to as the greatest poker contender on the globe by quite a few of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather showed him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to pickup whatever he possibly could about poker. Phil routinely told his elders that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He didn’t allow the detrimental feedback from other people kill his ambition of becoming one of the best poker players on the planet.

He started competing seriously after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He honed his techniques at the casinos of Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for him were a teaching opportunity and coming away with a win was not a common outcome at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he achieved two final tables and won his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he defeated many of the better known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his game to the successive level and moved out west to Vegas. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his success to dedication and an eternal love 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 always aspires to improve.

Although Phil has come first in some big tournaments, he prefers winning money games on a regular basis.
