Arguably the best poker player in the world, Phil Ivey is the youngest player to attain eight WSOP Bracelets, none of which were in a Texas Hold’em event. In 2005, Ivey was named Bluff Magazine's Player of the Year.
Ivey is known for playing high-stakes. He once beat Texas billionaire Andy Beal out of $16 million over the course of three days in $25,000/$50,000 No Limit Hold'em Heads Up. Ivey is a regular at the $4,000/$8,000 mixed cash game (The Big Game) at the Bellagio.
Ivey's family moved from Riverside, CA to New Jersey when he was a young child.
