Phil Ivey has been labeled as the number one poker contender in the world by many of the top-ranked professionals. He was born in Riverside, CA and moved to New Jersey before reaching the age of 1. His papa taught Phil one cent-ante Five-Card Stud poker. From that point on, Phil was hooked on poker and wished to discover whatever he could about the game. Phil would tell his grandparents that he wanted to be a professional poker player. Phil didn't allow the adverse comments from others annihilate his dream of becoming one of the best poker players in the world.

Phil started playing seriously after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He honed his abilities at the casinos in Atlantic City. The initial number of years for Phil were a teaching opportunity and winning was not a normal thing at the time. He made his mark at the 2000 World Series of Poker when he achieved two final tables and came away with his first WSOP bracelet, in a $2, five hundred Pot-Limit Omaha game. At the last table he destroyed quite a few of the better known professionals including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Phil decided to take his skills to the successive level and moved out west to Las Vegas. Phil continues to play in "The Big Game" at the Bellagio with the best players on the planet. Phil credits his success to hard work and an eternal love for poker. Phil says that he's learning every day and is incredibly abashed about his success. Phil knows he makes mistakes in each session of poker and always aspires to get better.

Despite the fact that Phil has won some large tournaments, he likes winning money games on a normal basis.
