Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker competitor on the globe by most of the top-ranked pros. He was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to NJ before reaching turning one. His grandpa taught Phil one cent-ante 5-Card Stud poker. From that point on, he was addicted to poker and wished to pickup whatever he could about the game. He routinely would tell his parents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. He didn’t let the detrimental feedback from other people kill his dream of becoming one of the strongest poker competitors on the planet.

He began playing seriously after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He practiced his game at the casinos in Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for him were a learning experience and winning wasn’t a regular thing at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP when he achieved 2 final tables and came away with his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the last table he defeated a number of the better known professionals which includes "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. He continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players in the world. Ivey credits his success to hard work and an immeasurable passion for poker. He states that he’s picking up skills every day and is incredibly abashed about his achievements. He admits to making mistakes every single game of poker and always strives to get better.

Despite the fact that Phil has come first in some big-time tournaments, he prefers winning cash games on a normal basis.
