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

Sunday, 25. October 2020

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker competitor on the planet by quite a few of the top professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather showed him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to pickup anything he could about poker. He routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t allow the negative feedback from other people annihilate his ambition of being one of the greatest poker players on the planet.

He started competing seriously after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his game at the casinos of Atlantic City. The initial number of years for Phil were a learning period and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular outcome at the time. Phil made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved two final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the closing table he destroyed quite a few of the well known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his skills to the successive level and headed out west to Las Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players in the world. Ivey credits his achievements to dedication and a continuing love for poker. He states that he is picking up skills every single day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. He knows he makes mistakes in each game of poker and constantly aspires to get better.

Despite the fact that Ivey has won some large tournaments, he likes winning cash games on a regular basis.
