Phil Ivey has been labeled as the best poker competitor on the planet by quite a few of the top-ranked professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching the age of one. His grandpa introduced him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was addicted to poker and wanted to pickup everything he possibly could about poker. Phil would tell his elders that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the adverse feedback from other people annihilate his goal of becoming one of the strongest poker players in the world.

Phil began competing intently after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his abilities at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning few years for him were a teaching period and winning wasn’t a normal outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved two final tables and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the final table he destroyed many of the better known professionals 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 next level and moved out west to Sin City. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Ivey credits his success to hard work and an undying love for the game of poker. He states that he’s picking up skills every single day and is incredibly humble about his success. He knows he makes blunders in each session of poker and always aspires to get better.

Despite the fact that Ivey has won some big-time tournaments, he likes destroying cash games on a normal basis.
