Monday, 8. April 2024

Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker competitor in the world by quite a few of the top pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before reaching turning 1. His grandpa taught him penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was addicted to poker and wished to learn anything he could about the game. He would tell his grandparents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. He didn’t let the negative comments from others annihilate his ambition of being one of the strongest poker players on the planet.

Phil began competing intently after getting a fake ID with the name of Jerome. He practiced his abilities at the casinos of Atlantic City. The beginning few years for him were a learning experience and winning was not a normal thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he achieved 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the last table he destroyed many of the better known professionals which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

He made a decision to take his game to the next level and headed out west to Las Vegas. He continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his achievements to discipline and an undying passion for poker. He states that he’s learning every single day and is quite humble about his accomplishments. He admits to making errors every single session of poker and always aspires to get better.

Despite the fact that Ivey has come first in some big-time tournaments, he prefers destroying money games on a regular basis.
