No-Limit Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

January 8th, 2024 Leave a comment Go to comments

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker player on the planet by many of the top professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning 1. His grandfather taught Phil penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to discover everything he possibly could about poker. Phil routinely would tell his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil didn’t permit the negative comments from other people kill his ambition of becoming one of the best poker players on the planet.

Phil began playing seriously after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He honed his game at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for him were a learning period and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular thing 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 last table he destroyed a number of the well known pros including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his game to the next level and moved out west to Sin City. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players in the world. Phil credits his success to hard work and an immeasurable passion for the game of poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every single day and is very abashed about his accomplishments. He admits to making blunders in each session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

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