Phil Ivey has been branded as the best poker player on the planet by quite a few of the top-ranked pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and moved to NJ before reaching turning one. His papa introduced him to penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, Phil was hooked on poker and wanted to learn every little thing he possibly could about the game. He routinely would tell his parents that he was planning on being a professional poker player. Phil did not allow the detrimental comments from others kill his ambition of being one of the greatest poker players in the world.

He began playing seriously after acquiring a false ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his skills at the poker rooms of Atlantic City. The initial few years for Phil were a teaching experience and coming away with a win wasn’t a normal outcome at the time. Phil became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved 2 final tables and won his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a two dollar, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha match. At the last table he destroyed a number of the well known pros which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil made a decision to take his skills to the next level and headed out west to Sin City. Phil continues to participate in in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Ivey credits his achievements to hard work and an eternal passion for poker. Phil says that he is picking up skills every day and is quite humble about his achievements. He admits to making errors every single session of poker and always strives to get better.

Even though Phil has won some big tournaments, he likes winning cash games on a regular basis.
