There is no poker player like the Tiger of Poker. Meet
Phil Ivey, one of the greatest of poker professionals. He is widely known for his unpredictability and is most definitely a person who knows how to re-raise even in the tensest of situations.
The young Phil Ivey grew up in the streets of New Jersey suburbs. As a teenager, Phil found ways to make money in ways that were unknown to people back in the old days. As he started working with telemarketing as a salesman, he took theory to practice and explored the world of poker - and defeated his fellow comrades. Back then Phil Ivey was known as "No Home Jerome". He sometimes uses this nickname in online poker rooms.
So what are you up against if you sit at a table with Phil Ivey? First of all, you must look beneath that stiff face of his and then try to figure out what he really is up to. He is aggressive, intuitive and practically any other positive verbs could be applied. Phil sometimes looks a bit upset while he s sitting at the table, although that s just his style. And if you re attempting to chat with him at anything besides the final table, you will probably have to shout, as he is a prominent iPod user. Besides the Apple outwear, he is a Los Angeles NBA fan, so don't be surprised if you see a team jersey, or perhaps a Full Tilt Poker jacket.
Unfortunately, we have no number on how big Ivey s income really is, but it is true that he can afford ten new iPods per day, only if he would like to. As of late 2005, Phil has had notable winnings exceeding over $10 million. That includes a total of five World Series of Poker bracelets, prominently the one in late June 2005, in which he scored a total of $635,603. Besides WSOP, Phil has notable accomplishments at World Poker Tour, although he is yet to conquer the first place. He has been at the final table a few times and even finished among the best on that table, but if we may bad luck kicked him out.
Although Phil Ivey officially plays most of his play at the real life tables, it is no secret that he sometimes takes a break and plays at Full Tilt Poker. As far as we know, he can be found at medium stakes tables as well as the high stakes, using nicknames close to Jerome and Ivey. Phil usually stays away from tournament play with the huge tournaments as the only exception. He is a true cash game player and has won a lot of money beating professionals and rich people who wanted a shot at Tiger Woods unknown twin brother.
