Phil Ivey has been labeled as the greatest poker contender in the world by most of the top pros. Phil was born in Riverside, CA and relocated to Jersey before his first birthday. His grandfather taught Phil penny-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From then on on, he was addicted to poker and wished to pickup every little thing he possibly could about the game. Phil routinely would tell his elders that he was going to be a professional poker player. Phil didn’t permit the detrimental feedback from other people destroy his goal of being one of the greatest poker players on the planet.

Phil began competing intently after getting a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his game at the casinos of Atlantic City. The initial number of years for him were a teaching experience and coming away with a win wasn’t a normal outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he made 2 final tables and came away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he defeated many of the well known professionals which includes "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his game to the next level and headed out west to Vegas. He continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the greatest players on the planet. Phil credits his achievements to hard work and an eternal passion for poker. He states that he is learning every day and is very humble about his achievements. Phil admits to making errors in each session of poker and always aspires to get better.

Even though Ivey has won some large tournaments, he prefers winning cash games on a normal basis.
