Riverside, California, was the birthplace of Phillip Dennis Ivey Junior, born on February 1, 1977. He has won 10 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and one World Poker Tour (WPT) bracelet.

While some of us may endevour to become real money slots online pros, a World Poker Tour finalist on nine occasions, he has become one of the world’s best poker players. He is frequently called the “Tiger Woods” of poker by his colleagues.

In 2018, Phil Ivey won over $26 million in tournament winnings. $6.66 million was provided by the WSOP.

The World Series of Poker

At the age of 23, Ivey beat fellow American Professional gambler Amarillo Slim for his first WSOP bracelet.

During 2002, Ivey played Split Poker, Limit Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, and Limit Seven Card Stud. He also placed 23rd in the WSOP main event.

Ivey already had eight bracelets by 2009, and he won the most votes for the Tournament of Champions in the 2010 World Series of Poker Tournament. He won ten World Series of Poker bracelets in only 14 years, making him the youngest player ever to win so many bracelets in such a short time. As a player he has followers and fans all around the world, from online casino australia real money, to the UK and of course United States.

Where is he now?

In the past, Ivey has been sued several times, including by the Borgata Casino in Las Vegas. Casino Management accused him of cheating with a technique called Edge Sorting. At the 2019 WSOP Tournament on June 27, 2019, the US Marshals served a writ of execution on Phil Ivey and seized his winnings to pay the Borgata. It was a pretty embarrassing situation that he found himself in.

A messy divorce, as well as lawsuits against Full Tilt Poker, followed.

He took 2 or 3 years off from playing professional poker since he no longer felt passionate about the game. The poker pro announced in November 2020 that he would return to playing professionally.
