Phil Ivey has been branded as the number one poker competitor on the globe by most of the top pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before reaching turning 1. His grandpa taught him one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was hooked on poker and wished to learn anything he possibly could about the game. Phil routinely would tell his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He didn’t allow the negative comments from other people annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the best poker players on the planet.

Phil began playing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his abilities at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a teaching experience and winning was not a normal outcome 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 first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he destroyed a number of the better known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He made a decision to take his game to the successive level and moved out west to Sin City. Phil continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his achievements to dedication and a continuing passion for poker. He states that he’s learning every day and is very humble about his success. He admits to making errors in each session of poker and constantly strives to get better.

Even though Ivey has won some big tournaments, he favors destroying money games on a normal basis.
