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

November 28th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker competitor on the planet by quite a few of the top-ranked professionals. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before reaching the age of one. His papa introduced him to one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was addicted to poker and wanted to learn anything he possibly could about poker. Phil routinely would tell his grandparents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not let the negative feedback from others annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the greatest poker competitors in the world.

Phil started playing seriously after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his game at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a learning experience and coming away with a win was not a regular outcome at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 WSOP where he made 2 final tables and came away with his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the closing table he defeated a number of the well known professionals including but not limited to "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 play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Phil credits his achievements to dedication and an eternal passion for poker. He says that he’s learning every single day and is quite abashed about his success. He knows he makes blunders every single session of poker and always strives to get better.

Despite the fact that Ivey has won some big tournaments, he prefers destroying money games on a regular basis.
