Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker competitor on the globe by quite a few of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before reaching the age of one. His papa taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was addicted to poker and wished to learn anything he possibly could about the game. Phil routinely told his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil didn’t allow the negative comments from others kill his ambition of being one of the strongest poker competitors on the planet.

He started playing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his techniques at the casinos of Atlantic City. The initial number of years for him were a teaching experience and winning was not a regular outcome at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved two final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he destroyed a number of the well known pros including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Vegas. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his success to discipline and an undying love for the game of poker. He states that he is picking up skills every day and is very humble about his achievements. Phil admits to making blunders every single game of poker and constantly strives to improve.

Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some large tournaments, he prefers destroying cash games on a normal basis.
