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

Saturday, 6. August 2022

Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker competitor in the world by quite a few of the top-ranked pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before reaching turning one. His grandpa taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wished to pickup whatever he could about the game. Phil routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t allow the adverse feedback from others annihilate his goal of being one of the greatest poker players in the world.

Phil began playing seriously after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his techniques at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The first few years for Phil were a learning experience and winning was not a regular thing at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the closing table he defeated a number of the well known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his skills to the successive level and headed out west to Sin City. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to discipline and an undying love for poker. He says that he is picking up skills every day and is incredibly abashed about his success. Phil admits to making errors every single game of poker and always strives to improve.

Although Phil has won some big-time tournaments, he likes winning money games on a regular basis.
