Phil Ivey has been referred to as the best poker player on the planet by most of the top pros. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before reaching turning one. His papa taught Phil one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wished to discover everything he could about the game. Phil routinely told his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil did not allow the adverse comments from other people destroy his goal of being one of the strongest poker players in the world.

Phil began playing intently after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his game at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for him were a teaching opportunity and coming away with a win wasn’t a normal outcome at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and won his first WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the final table he defeated many of the well known pros including but not limited to "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his skills 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 success to dedication and an eternal love for the game of poker. Phil says that he is learning every single day and is quite abashed about his achievements. Phil knows he makes errors in each session of poker and always aspires to improve.

Although Phil has won some large tournaments, he likes destroying money games on a normal basis.
