Regarded as the World’s Greatest Poker Player, Phil Ivey continues to break records and bring home astounding prize winnings. Although a well-known tournament player, Ivey’s bread and butter stems from high stakes cash games. Prior to 2011, Phil was No. 1 worldwide in terms of online cash game earnings with an impressive $19.24 million.
At present, only one player has won more bracelets at the World Series of Poker than Ivey. His ten bracelet victories span just about every variant of poker offered at the WSOP.
Ivey’s three bracelet wins in 2002 tied the record for most bracelets won in a single WSOP. In addition, Phil finished third in the first ever $50,000 HORSE Event in 2006; also known as the Poker Player’s Championship.
His record on the World Poker Tour is equally as impressive with nine WPT final tables and one victory at the 2008 LA Poker Classic. His nine final tables is top in the WPT and his $3.37 million in WPT earnings is 12th all-time for the tour.
While he has won just about every poker title conceivable, the WSOP Main Event still eludes him. Phil’s deepest run in the Main Event was a November Nine appearance in 2009 where he finished seventh; however, many feel that it is just a matter of time before he takes down poker’s grandest prize.…
Along with Jeff Fried, and Monta Ellis, guard for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Ivey founded All In Entertainment LLC: a sports and entertainment promotional firm.
