Phil Ivey Finally Appears at WSOP
Phil Ivey, considered by many to be the ‘greatest of all time’, finally appeared at this year’s World Series of Poker to join Day 1C –his first, and only, event of the series.
Phil Ivey, real name Phillip Dennis Ivey Jr. is widely regarded as one of the best poker players to ever grace this earth. His massive personality and phenomenal poker skills have taken him to the top of the poker world throughout the past 20 years. To try your hand at becoming one of the best, we suggest Carbon Poker for USA players. He was born in Riverside, California on Feburary 1st 1976, and started playing poker around his twenties were he got his first nickname "No Home Jerome" come from the ID he used to play at the local casino and later on he got the nickname "Tiger Woods of Poker".
It was from here Ivey started to hone his skills and slowly start to become noticed as a very scary opponent.
"The Corporation" vs Andrew Beal
Perhaps one of the most notable stories surrounding Ivey’s poker career is that of his Heads Up battle with billionaire banker Andrew Beal back in 2006. According to several reports around that time, Ivey and Beal played three days of poker against each other, with Ivey coming out on top with a cool $16.6m profit. This whole saga stemmed from an ongoing battle between Beal and several top players for many years before that, in which the players then decided to club together, coin themselves ‘The Corporation’ and take on Beal. It was also reported that the $16.6m win meant that ‘The Corporation’ had won back $10m they had lost to Beal previously and added the $6.6m to their bankroll as a whole.

As TheHendonMob reports Phil Ivey has accumulated more than 23 million dollars from tournaments alone, and over $10m in online winnings. A big percentage of this money came from other regular high stakes players such as Patrik Antonius, Viktor Blom, and Tom Dwan.
