NL Hold’em Poker- Who is Phil Ivey?

Monday, 19. June 2023

Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker player on the planet by quite a few of the top professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before his first birthday. His papa taught him one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was hooked on poker and wanted to pickup every little thing he could about the game. Phil routinely told his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He did not permit the adverse comments from other people destroy his ambition of becoming one of the strongest poker players in the world.

Phil started competing seriously after acquiring a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He sharpened his techniques at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The first few years for Phil were a learning period and coming away with a win wasn’t a regular thing at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he defeated a number of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He decided to take his game to the successive level and moved out west to Vegas. Phil continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his success to hard work and a continuing love for the game of poker. Phil says that he’s picking up skills every single day and is incredibly humble about his success. Phil admits to making blunders every single session of poker and constantly strives to improve.

Even though Phil has won some big tournaments, he prefers destroying cash games on a regular basis.
