Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker player on the globe by quite a few of the top-ranked professionals. Phil Ivey was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching the age of one. His grandpa taught Phil one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was hooked on poker and wished to learn everything he possibly could about poker. He would tell his parents that he was going to be a professional poker player. Phil did not permit the detrimental feedback from other people annihilate his ambition of becoming one of the best poker players on the planet.

Phil started competing intently after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his game at the casinos in Atlantic City. The initial number of years for him were a teaching opportunity and winning wasn’t a common thing at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he achieved two final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the final table he defeated quite a few of the better known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his game to the successive level and headed out west to Las Vegas. He continues to compete in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Ivey credits his achievements to discipline and an eternal love for the game of poker. Phil states that he’s learning every single day and is quite humble about his success. Phil admits to making errors in each session of poker and always strives to improve.

Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some large tournaments, he likes destroying money games on a regular basis.
