Thursday, 24. December 2015

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker player on the planet by quite a few of the top pros. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His papa taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wished to learn whatever he could about poker. Phil routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t permit the negative feedback from other people annihilate his ambition of being one of the greatest poker competitors on the planet.

He started playing seriously after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He honed his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for Phil were a learning experience and winning was not a normal thing at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved two final tables and came away with his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he defeated a number of the better known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his game to the successive level and moved out west to Las Vegas. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to hard work and a continuing passion for the game of poker. Phil says that he’s learning every day and is quite humble about his accomplishments. Phil admits to making blunders every single game of poker and always aspires to improve.

Despite the fact that Phil has won some big-time tournaments, he likes destroying cash games on a regular basis.
