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

Sunday, 17. September 2017

Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker competitor in the world by most of the top pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to New Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather taught him one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was addicted to poker and wished to learn everything he possibly could about the game. Phil routinely would tell his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He did not let the negative comments from others kill his dream of becoming one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

He started playing seriously after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his abilities at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The first few years for him were a learning opportunity and coming away with a win was not a regular outcome at the time. He became known 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, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he destroyed many of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Vegas. He continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his success to dedication and an eternal passion for the game of poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every day and is very abashed about his achievements. Phil knows he makes errors every single session of poker and always aspires to get better.

Although Ivey has won some big tournaments, he likes destroying money games on a normal basis.
