Posted by Prince | Posted in Poker | Posted on 05-02-2021

Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker contender in the world by quite a few of the top pros. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before his first birthday. His papa taught him one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was hooked on poker and wanted to learn every little thing he possibly could about the game. Phil routinely told his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. He did not allow the detrimental comments from others destroy his dream of being one of the greatest poker players on the planet.

He began competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The beginning few years for Phil were a learning period and coming away with a win wasn’t a normal thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker where he achieved 2 final tables and came away with his 1st WSOP bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the last table he defeated a number of the well known pros including "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 Las Vegas. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Ivey credits his achievements to discipline and an immeasurable love for poker. Phil says that he is learning every single day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. He knows he makes errors every single session of poker and always strives to improve.

Despite the fact that Ivey has won some large tournaments, he favors destroying money games on a normal basis.
